This 10th edition of the annual dance festival promises to be a wider representation of the diversity of dance. It has been extended into a three-day program featuring eleven up & coming, underrepresented and emerging choreographers and dance companies from across Queens and all boroughs of New York City. This year’s festival has a greater opportunity to represent the cultural diversity in NYC’s community and there will be a number of premieres including the JCAL commissioned piece by Choreographer Paige Stewart of Kingdom Dance Company.
