25th Anniversary Celebration

THE DANCE NOW STORY

A virtual tour

through our past, present & future

Welcome to the DANCE NOW Story: An alternative, virtual space celebrating our 25th Anniversary Season. Recreating the intimate, robust and energizing atmosphere of Joe’s Pub at The Public, this online experience will unite artists and audiences through up close and personal performances & digital events.

The DN Story will be told in six monthly chapters, launching Sept 10th, 2020 through May 2021. Each chapter brings together artists who honor our past, embrace the present reality, and create new and future possibilities.

COMMUNITY GATHERINGS

Each DANCE NOW Community Gathering is FREE, unique to the hosting artist and the participants who share their thoughts and experiences. Artists provide a frame work and starting point for the discussion, often sharing snippets of work in progress, or techniques they use in their lives and creative processes. Participants each get a chance to respond and share, creating a thoughtful, in-depth discussion.
