Laguna Beach home to Dance FestivalThe summer art festivals may be winding down in Laguna Beach, but if you live in Laguna Beach, you know the creativity hasn't stopped! This week artists from throughout Laguna Beach will be opening their doors for the monthly ArtWalk, including UCI dancers prepping for the Laguna Dance Festival at the Laguna Art Museum at 6:30 p.m. The Laguna Dance Festival runs September 6th through September 9th and is a fantastic opportunity to witness amazing performances without having to travel far from your Laguna Beach home!

Tickets for all shows are available for sale by visiting the Laguna Playhouse online. A reception for artists and patrons will take place on Saturday, Sept. 8th following the performance and admission to the party is $75.
