Hudson Valley Dance Festival

10/7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Hudson Valley Dance Festival

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 115-year-old wooden warehouse at Historic Catskill Point into a modern-day dance venue.

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 nine based in the Hudson Valley, including HVCS. (In fact, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS just gave us at $10,000 grant to support our Client Assistance Program!)

Tickets start at $40 and are on sale now. Sponsorship opportunities also are available. The VIP reception will take place at W&G SPACE in Catskill, a beautifully renovated art studio on Catskill Creek. 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.
