Installation art champions a shift in focus from what art visually represents to what it communicates. Installation artists are less focused on presenting an aesthetically pleasing object to viewers as they are enfolding that viewer into an environment or set of systems of their own creation. Accepting proposals for installation pieces that are solely focused in DANCE.

The Palm Springs International Dance Festival (PSIDF) is a program of Nickerson-Rossi Dance (NRD), a registered non-profit 501c3.


Since 2013, NRD has been bringing dance to Palm Springs through educational programs that commission internationally recognized educators to make a lasting impact on youth here in Palm Springs by exposing them to the art of dance and providing further opportunities to those who wish to pursue dance as a professional career or a forever love. We aim to produce programs within the festival that have low or no cost to serve our greater desert communities at large and orchestrate performances that feature world renowned dance companies of all cultural and artistic backgrounds.
