Direction Home, in our effort to continue our Aging is an Art Form outreach and bring art to older adults and their families, have partnered with the City of Akron to help bring you this year's Heinz Poll Summer Dance Festival.
Sponsored by the City of Akron, The Heinz Poll Summer Dance Festival has been established to honor the legacy of the legendary founding Artistic Director of Ohio Ballet, and continues the tradition of free public performances by respected dance companies, each presenting a unique dance experience, but all sharing the common thread of Poll's commitment to the highest artistic standards.
This Festival is a tribute to Poll's legacy and a gift of the performing arts to the people of Greater Akron.
Attention Service Coordinators!
The performance at Goodyear Heights Park will be recorded and a link available for a limited time to facilities upon request. If you are interested in receiving the link and hosting a watch party, please click the registration button and share your information with us.
