We invite you to participate in the 2019 Detroit Dance City Festival, a three-day community building dance celebration founded by ArtLab J, to be held Friday August 23, Saturday August 24, and Sunday August 25, 2019 at the Detroit Institute of Arts. ArtLab J is non-profit organization, founded in 2012, to provide a space for performing arts. Our goals are to build a larger and stronger dance community in the city of Detroit encouraging unity between the city, the metro area’s companies, studios, and individuals, and beyond to other cities and to encourage artists to present their work, giving them an opportunity to contribute to the cultivation of the arts in Detroit. We also strive to encourage the participation of all types of movers (dancers and non dancers alike) and ensure their enjoyment.
*Choreographers and dancers expected to attend all three days of the festival.
The festival will begin with an orientation in which everyone will be required to attend. There will also be networking events all three days of the festival, in which everyone will be expected to attend.
