Featuring A Dance-Off With Local Dance Crews and Celebrity Judges
PENSACOLA, Fla. (May 11, 2022) — On Friday, May 20 from 5pm-9pm, Gallery Night Pensacola’s theme is “Dancin’ In the Streets”! While Gallery Night is always a great time to bust a move, this month we are highlighting the art of dance in a major way.
In honor of our dancing theme, check out our dance zones throughout the event footprint featuring local dance groups, plus a dance-off competition from 6 to 9 PM at the Garden Street Stage in front of Vinyl Music Hall with $1,000 in prizes! K-pop, hip-hop, line dance, jazz fusion, and street dance are among the competing dance styles.
The dance competition will feature a panel of talented judges, including Councilwoman Teniade Broughton, Danielle Oplaski of Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Julius Bensen of P’Cola Poppers, and Michael Burton aka Turb0h.
Each Gallery Night event features more than 40 local artists displaying their one-of-a-kind creations in open-air tents lining the streets. Enjoy a mini art zone in front of Artel Gallery with Artel member artists, and a Palafox mini-market on Government Street. Gallery Night Art Zones are sponsored by T-Mobile.
Participating downtown bars and restaurants are open and serving guests. Local shops and galleries will be open late and provide event patrons a chance to shop for unique gifts and wares.
Each Gallery Night Pensacola event’s special themes set the tone for the performers, art, musical performance stages, and activities that are sure to please. Gallery Night is an all-ages community arts and culture event that happens on the third Friday of each month from 5-9 p.m.
Gallery Night is presented by our wonderful community partner, Publix.
The Pensacola Gallery Night Board encourages mask usage for those who are not vaccinated for COVID-19 or are at high health risk.
