The Lake Harriet Rose Garden is stunning in summer. The Dances at the Lake Festival is modeled after a sister dance festival held on the Duluth LakeWalk, that features many dance organizations, including youth ensembles, performing two nights of various forms of contemporary dance. Founded by the Christopher Watson Dance Company, the festival is in its 20th year, after two year pause due to pandemic. The Ray Terrill Dance Group is sole producer. Dancers are local, from other states (and occasionally international) who perform for the greater Twin Cities audience. This FREE open to the public, outdoor event is a great way to introduce anyone to contemporary dance.​ Ray Terrill Dance Group will present an excerpt from 'Flow.'
