Dance Faculty Concert - This Friday!!

Come support the faculty of Long Island University Brooklyn's Dance Department this Friday!


BCC at SummerStage: Saturday August 20th. Come Check Us Out!

We're performing again and this's a big one!  My dance company, Border Crossing Collective, is honored to be a part of City Parks Foundation's Annual SummerStage Festival.  We are performing on Saturday August 20th at the East River Amphitheater* (map).  There will be a FREE dance class at 7pm and showtime is 8pm.  Seating is on a first come first serve basis

We will be presenting our first full-length evening work, "¡Holy New York!," a collection of choreographic perspectives exploring the effects of a city relentless in energy and pace. The dancers weave through experiences, as the emotional manifestations of survival, love, addiction and a search for oneself is at times all consuming but always redemptive.

I'd like to give a HUGE thank you to our dancers, Laura Colon, Mone't Freeman, Sherille Grant, Michelle Lawton, Kafi Pierre, Emma Powers and Jennifer Whitley for all of their hard work and dedication.  This would not have been possible without them.  I'd also like to thank producer extraordinaire, Phantom Lover, for the use of some of his music and IsKwé for the use of her beautiful poetry.

Come on down and enjoy a night of dance under the stars.  It is a show not to be missed.



*Amphitheater Address in East River Park Enter at Delancey Street bridge over the FDR Drive and walk south or via Cherry St/Jackson Ave entrance into Corlears Hook Park and over the FDR Drive bridge leading directly to the amphitheater.

"Our goal is to provide a unique arts experience for young people, where they can connect with a diverse group of students and grow both artistically and personally."
