The Boston Contemporary Dance Festival was established in 2012 to celebrate the new and largely unknown art of contemporary dance. The festival, produced by Urbanity Dance, brings a diverse array of contemporary dance artists together from across the United States, inviting the greater Boston community to experience this art form at its finest. 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. 


Message from the Founder

We’re happy to announce that we will be bringing back the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival on August 12th, 2017. The festival will continue to promote community and bring the high quality of dance that we’ve come to expect from BCDF, having been curated by a panel of dance professionals. We are ecstatic to be able to bring a host of talent from across the United States to our hometown. This is an opportunity to share and be inspired by contemporary dance companies across the country, as well as bring exposure to Boston as an emerging force in the contemporary dance scene.
