NYC Dance and Music Festival is a platform for select 21st century performing artists who are innovative, world class, and creating ground breaking work. It is an opportunity for emerging dance performers and music groups or composers to present their work to a new audience. We aim to cultivate opportunities for artists who are not yet able to produce or showcase on a platform on their own, and need additional public relations assistance to produce a performance.

It is an opportunity for selected emerging  dance companies, individual dancers, or choreographers, and emerging music groups or composers to present their work to a wider audience and we curate to bring these artists into the spotlight. 

Artists are selected by a panel of 6 industry professionals from around the world.

NYC Dance and Music Festival provides:

– Performance venue
– Video footage of your performance
– Press & Marketing tools
