The Heinz Poll 2013 Summer Dance Festival in Akron

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.

The Festival is a tribute to Poll's legacy and a gift of the performing arts to the people of Greater Akron.
