We’re thrilled to be making all three of our inaugural Future Dance Festival programs available for FREE streaming for a limited time, thanks to the generous support of our donors and all who joined us for the festival’s April premiere.
The Future Dance Festival was created to provide a bridge to connect the next generation of creators with the current generation of directors.
In December 2020, an open call for submissions went out to emerging choreographers and was met with an unprecedented 185 applicants who, in response, shared their talent, authenticity, and inspiration.
21 finalists were selected by our distinguished panelists and complied into three programs. Within each program, the panelist introduces the work they chose and provides insight into their selection.
Please join us in following these new voices and new visions into their bright futures ...
