"It is the most important choreography event of the year in the desert … it's a chance to perform in front of a large audience on a professional stage and it's going to be a full house," said Charles Phipps, a Palm Springs resident and the first local choreographer to compete in the professional division.
His two-person dance company will share the stage with professional companies from New York, San Diego and Los Angeles.
Phipps, former executive director of the Palm Springs Ballet and a professional ballet and modern dancer, will present adance piece inspired by Greek mythology called "Pan & Syrinx."
"It's a combination of classic ballet and modern dance," he said.
The choreographer formed the Charles Phipps Dance Co. specifically to enter the festival.
"There's very few of these (festivals) in the world, where groups are brought together to present choreography (as an art)," he said.
For Phipps, communicating with the audience is his goal.
"I really have no concerns about whether I win a prize … I want the audience to be moved," he said.
