Future Dance Festival

The Future Dance Festival builds on 92Y’s rich legacy of presenting the work of pioneering dance artists who propel the art form forward.

Conceived during the COVID-19 quarantine to connect emerging dance creators with dance company directors 185 artists submitted their work to a panel of influential leaders in the field, who selected our 21 finalists who were presented over 3 weekends as part of our digital festival. This year we will be adding an in-person performance element to the Festival as a platform to further advance these diverse and rich new choreographic voices forward.

View more information on the festival.

Kaufmann Concert Hall is where audiences witnessed iconic artists including Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, Jose Limon and Pearl Primus push boundaries, on this historic stage, audiences experienced the evolution of an art form.

Join us as we return to this stage and provide a platform for modern-day pioneers to take risks, to remove boundaries and to transport us into the future of dance.
