After a successful first year, the 2nd annual Queensboro Dance Festival returns to The Secret Theater in Long Island City this October 12-18th. The festival features only Queens-based choreographers with the mission to strengthen the dance identity in Queens, and to bring together the community in the spirit of dance cultivated in the borough. This year the festival will present 24 Queens-based choreographers, spanning across the neighborhoods of Long Island City, Jackson Heights, Elmhurst, Woodside, Howard Beach, Astoria, Sunnyside, and St. Albans. Many of the dance works will be Queens premieres, ranging from bellydance to tap, modern to flamenco. The kick-off party is open to the public, where participating choreographers and Queens community can mingle. The week continues with 6 curated evenings of dance performances, including post-show talkbacks on Thursday, Friday, and Satuday. A free open rehearsal of various past and present festival participants will take place Sunday October 11, 3-8pm at Murray Playground (21st St at 45th Rd) in Long Island City. Dance/NYC and Spaceworks LIC are festival community partners.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
