Heinz Poll Summer Dance Festival 2021

The Heinz Poll Summer Dance Festival was created in 2007 following the demise of Ohio Ballet and will present its 14th season this summer.  Free performances by professional companies in Akron parks during the summer is a tradition that began in 1974 with Heinz Poll himself.  The City of Akron has been a sponsor of the outdoor dance performances for 47 years – an achievement unique to Akron, Ohio among American cities.
