More than a festival
From May to October every year, the Queensboro Dance Festival presents a diverse range of Queens-based companies tour throughout Queens, engaging neighborhoods and neighbors. Our mission is to strengthen the dance community in Queens, and garner a greater appreciation for Queens dance.
The Queensboro Dance Festival strives to be a resource for dancers' careers by providing performances, free dance classes, workshops, teaching opportunities, and networking events. The festival also offers the public free audience engagement dance activities and classes during our 6-month season.
Our 2018 Milestone Season
QDF 2018 launched its 5th anniversary season with our new official tour across Queens theaters, parks, plazas, and libraries, reaching over 20 neighborhoods.
Beginning the year as a Queens Pride Honoree for our community work, last season boasted 26 diverse dance companies from Queens, 31 performances and classes, and 21 dance work premieres. We also hosted international group the Inner Mongolia Performance Arts Troupe as their NYC debut right here in Queens. Our 2019 season is now our biggest tour yet, and recently finished the year as the inaugural recipient of TFC Best of Arts & Humanities.
Neighborhood Community Engagement
Every show on tour is a different line-up of Queens companies of all cultures and styles, featuring various audience activities including Question & Answer sessions with the dancers, dance games, and our QDF Dancebacks, where audience members get to take a mini dance lesson with our companies. Be sure to follow us, subscribe, and check back here for announcements!
