Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Dances on the Lakewalk, once an innovative concept, became an established and respected opportunity artists to highlight their choreography. The revival of dance performances along the Lakewalk blends the innovative with the established. New faces have choreographic and performance opportunities in this outdoor setting and the audience will get to enjoy dance works by those established choreographers they may not have seen in recent years.Tracking the number of people attending and participating in the event each year helps us decide the future of the event. The post-performance conversations with audience members will play an important role in evaluating the project's success along with a post-event meeting with the choreographers and dancers.
