Making Moves Dance Festival
Commissions and works-in-progress by Queens-based choreographers and dance companies are presented each September. All year long, JCAL also partners with Redtail Artist Residencies, which supports NYC dance and music artists through free space and public performances.
From JCAL's Executive Director Leonard Jacobs:
“We feel pride, warmth, even a bit of awe toward this year’s MMDF artists. In part because they’re an intrinsically diverse group that attests to our community’s strength, but also in part because, as individuals and collectively, they leverage the power of their creativity in all they do—a crucial skill set in bracing times. These artists understand that the act of creation, no matter the subject or theme, is about the gift of freedom of expression.”
