The Black Choreographers Festival is a weekend of dance that will highlight the beauty & talent of Baltimore BIPOC dance artists. This Festival, held at Creative Alliance in Baltimore City, will connect and reflect the Baltimore dance community through movement workshops, panel discussions, and performances that will be facilitated by BIPOC artists. The Black Choreographers Festival will represent the Baltimore community through unique works that are choreographed by dancers who mirror what many Baltimore residents look like, people of color. Through multi-genre master classes led by established Black educators, a networking event, and two evening performances, the Black Choreographers Festival will uplift and support the Baltimore community.
FRI & SAT evening performances will be able to stream virtually as well as attend in-person. Celebrate Black movement! The Black Choreographers Festival on October 15th & 16th brings together some of the strongest movement artists in the region to showcase new work, celebrate exceptional artistry and expand learning opportunities. Evening Showcases on October 15th & 16th each begin at 7PM and include multiple performances as well as a post-event talk back. Workshops begin on Saturday October 16th at 9:30am and run through 3:45pm.
