Artists for Hope is a charity concert event in which all proceeds are gifted to a chosen local organization that makes a positive impact in our community. Entering its 7th year, AFH is returning to the studio and stage for a live event in Houston, TX on January 28-29, 2022. San Jacinto College South Campus will once again hold master classes and two evening concerts in the Fine Arts Building, showcasing some of the finest dance artistry that Houston has to offer!
In 2021, we leapt into the virtual world and hosted our first annual International Dance Film Festival. After such a successful virtual event we have decided to continue our Film Festival in 2022! Last year we received 60 submissions from 16 countries around the world, and we are hoping to make this year's event an even bigger success. Check out the video below for an exclusive look at some of the films that were presented last season:
