Dancing in the Streets 2017


You are here

For this year's festival we were fortunate to receive support that afforded our ability to support the dance community in creating new work. 

With a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts we were able to support six regional companies in the development of new work and to workshop that work with John Jasperse.  During the fall of 2016 each company participated in two workshops over two months with John to futher develop a new work.   

The productions below are a outcome of this work.  

Thanks to prior board member Nicole Pierce and to John Jasperse for his professional development work with the companies.   And thanks to this year's tech crew, Ellen Moore on lighting design, Dana Westover on sound, and Victor Tiernan on flooring.

2017 funding for the professional devleopment and performance series is generously provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Somerville Arts Council, with technical support from the Boston Dance Alliance.
