“Dance on the Lawn” celebrates dance in New Jersey and aims to increase exposure to dance by bringing professional and emerging companies, plus students of dance from around New Jersey together in a community setting that is free and open to the public. Each year Dance on the Lawn selects and supports an “Emerging Commissioned New Jersey Choreographer,” offering performance opportunities guided by a mentor. Robert Mark Burke was chosen in 2015 and Kyle Marshall is the 2016 recipient.
Since its inception in 2014, Dance on the Lawn has presented New Jersey school performing groups and New Jersey professional companies at its annual Festival, including Randy James’ 10 Hairy Legs, Maurice Chestnut’s Dance Therapy and Donna Scro’s Freespace Dance. New York professional companies have included Seán Curran Company, Janis Brenner & Dancers, works by Troy Powell (Artistic Director, Ailey II), Ballet Hispanico Dos and DanceGrandMoultrie.
SummerStage is the largest FREE performing arts festival in New York City. By presenting artists and genres that reflect the diverse cultures and communities in neighborhood parks across the five boroughs, we help to build new audiences and foster a broader interest in the arts.
