Boston Youth Dance Festival is a celebration Boston's vibrant dance community. An estimated one hundred youth dancers from across Boston gather to teach and learn from each other and with museum visitors through performances, classes and choreography projects. Youth dancers from across Greater Boston will perform and lead workshops in a variety of dance genres including modern, hip hop, Chinese folk dance, Latin, Haitian, Kathak, and others.
Additionally, participating dancers will debut a new work that they choreograph together. Prior to the festival, youth of participating organizations are meeting to collaborate and co-choreograph new works that draw on and blend their different dance styles.
Throughout the festival, visitors will see performances, take workshops and learn about dance in the city of Boston. Through bringing dancers from across Boston together, this event connects young people to their own potential while fostering a creative community that is encouraging, inclusive, and just.
