Join us Friday through Sunday, May 4-6, for one of Seaside’s most exciting times of the year, Seaside Dance Festival weekend. This annual dance festival features dance artists from professional companies around the globe to the newly constructed Seaside Lyceum Stage for a weekend celebration of exceptional dance artistry. All events are free and open to the public.
The Seaside Dance Festival offers a variety of dance style performances by professionals which include ballet, contemporary, tap, hip hop, jazz, modern, neo-classical and more. This year, the Seaside Dance Festival features performances from New York Dance Project, Paul Taylor II, Complexions, Rasta Thomas, Gwen Gussman, Sarah Wolff, and Florida Ballet.
Join Topsail Hill Preserve State Park for a Topsail Talks Educational Discovery Series on Friday, Feb. 9 from 10 to 11 a.m. South Walton Artificial Reef Association will discuss the seahorse reef installed at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. The snorkel reefs are close enough to the shore that they can be reached by kayak or paddle board, so snorkelers or divers can access them from the beach.
Twelve additional dive reefs will also be constructed – 9 of them will be near shore fish/dive reefs located about 2/3 miles off the beach and in about 60 feet of water. The other 3 are classified as fish havens/reef sights and will be located 3-7 miles offshore in about 80 feet of water. The off-shore reefs are the perfect destination for SCUBA divers to explore via a charter boat in Walton County!
