It took place for the first time December, 2018 in Nevada City, California at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center. The aim of the festival is to increase the understanding and accessibility of contemporary dance by presenting a variety of creative works in various performance formats as well as giving dance outreach workshops and creating opportunities for locals. “Mingle Me Home” enhances the development of artistic partnerships and strengthens the creative diversity of small towns worldwide.
