Event description:

The Queensboro Dance Festival is an annual season of performances and public events for Queens-based cultural and contemporary dance groups. Founded in 2014, the festival’s mission is to strengthen the dance community across Queens and garner a greater appreciation for Queens dance. Throughout the season of performances, QDF also offers participants free dance classes, meet-and-greets, discounted rehearsal space, special access to various Queens arts institutions, and free outdoor previews in various neighborhoods called "The QDF Neighborhoods Tour," as opportunities for dancers to connect with their own neighborhoods. QDF is produced by The Physical Plant, a dance + production company based in Long Island City led by Karesia Batan. The Physical Plant is dedicated to creating meaningful dance works, and providing innovative dance programming that bridges communities within Queens and the arts. “Each year, more cultural groups are participating in the festival, which has been really exciting,” says Karesia Batan, QDF founder/director. “It’s a different opportunity where Queens-based cultural groups and contemporary dance companies share a platform, and expand each other's audiences.” The program this year features:
