Choreographer Testimonials

I was truly impressed with the wealth of cultures and forms of dance showcased in this event. It broadened my scope of possibilities. ~anonymous

QDF allowed me to share my work with my community directly. As a choreographer, building a loyal fan base is difficult and QDF provided access to dance in a way few festivals do. Thank you! ~Billy Blanken, Sheep Meadow Dance Theatre

I am proud to be a dancer and choreographer in the Queensboro Dance Festival...It is exciting to have an amazing community at home! The festival spreads love, art, and awareness in the Queens community in more ways than one! ~anonymous

 

QDF gives a voice to the cultural and artistic fluency in Queens. ~anonymous

QDF has been a platform for me to share my work with more people and gather more opportunities from the folks who came to see QDF. I am forever thankful. ~Jacqui Dugal, Dugal Dance Projects
