PUSHfest grew out of a critical need to provide a platform for dance to be appreciated as a diverse and culturally relevant entity within the San Francisco Bay Area. This unique festival offers a wide range of dance styles while inspiring dialogue and innovation. Part of the success of PUSH is its commitment to a widespread marketing campaign to highlight each artist involved.


PUSHfest is a cross-genre dance festival launched in 2014 by PUSH Dance Company. The inaugural season of PUSHfest featured works by 14 emerging and mid-career choreographers.The 14 dance works spanned diverse genres (modern, ballet, hip-hop, ethnic, and multi-disciplinary) and drew an audience of hundreds across the festival’s four performances at the state-of-the-art ODC Theater.  


PUSHfestbrings together already existing and created works from choreographers working within different dance disciplines and showcases these works under the same evening. The festival also serves as PUSH’s fall season, for which the company premieres new work.


In the spirit of the success of the first festival, the PUSHfest Award is a new entity that allows audience members to choose their favorite artists in each of the two programs. All artists will be awarded a finalist spot in the festival. The PUSHfest Award is a peer review & chosen by the audience. 2 artists will receive an award (one award given to one artist in each of the programs) and an honorarium.
