Hudson Valley Dance Festival: Dancers Responding to AIDS
October 7, 2017
Renowned dance companies and emerging artists return to the heart of the Hudson Valley when Hudson Valley Dance Festival presents its fifth annual edition with performances at 2 pm and 5 pm October 7. The festival will again transform the 120-year-old wooden warehouse at Historic Catskill Point into a modern-day dance venue.
This year’s performances will include pieces by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Rob Ashford, Cirio Collective, Manuel Vignoulle – M/motions, MOVETHECOMPANY, New York Theatre Ballet, Tayeh Dance and MOMIX. Learn more about the choreographers and companies. Performances subject to change.
In its first four years, Hudson Valley Dance Festival has raised an impressive $460,397. The money raised helps Dancers Responding to AIDS and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS provide grants to AIDS and family service organizations nationwide, including 10 based in the Hudson Valley: Albany Damien Center and Alliance for Positive Health in Albany, Animalkind and Columbia-Greene Community Foundation in Hudson, Matthew 25 Food Pantry and Community Hospice in Catskill, Hudson Valley Community Services in Hawthorne, Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center in Kingston, Roe Jan Food Pantry in Hillsdale and TOUCH (Together Our Unity Can Heal) in Congers.
Tickets start at $40 and are on sale now. Sponsorship opportunities also are available. New this year is a special VIP daytrip package from New York City that includes roundtrip luxury bus transportation, a tour of the just-restored Thomas Cole National Historic Site with champagne luncheon, a ticket to the 2 pm performance and a cocktail reception after the show. In the 1800s, Cole was the founder of the famed Hudson River School of painting, the nation’s first art movement, and the inspiration for this year’s Hudson Valley Dance Festival artwork.
