Boston Contemporary Dance Festival was established in 2012 to honor and celebrate the burgeoning form that is contemporary dance in Boston. The festival exists to bring a diverse array of contemporary dance artists together from across the United States, inviting the greater Boston community to experience a weekend of high-quality performances. Participants and audience members are invited to meet and mingle with critics, producers, photographers, and leaders in the national dance community, all while exploring contemporary dance as a site of social change and progress.
