WHITE WAVE Dance is proud to celebrate our 20th Anniversary season of the DUMBO Dance Festival VITURALLY!

WHITE WAVE scours the globe in search of today's most innovative dancemakers, both emerging and established, and brings them VIRTUALLY together for one extended weekend, all the while paying extra attention to the new, emerging, and experimental. Dance lovers will experience a veritable cornucopia of the best of contemporary dance. 2021 VDDF attracts the very best by providing artists access to our global audiences to experience, first-hand, the incomparable vitality of the NY & around-the-world Dance scene.

2021 VDDF features 60 contemporary dance troupes combining over 350 artists who will present solo, chamber, and full-scale works. Dancers from across the United States, and internationally, from Mexico, Hungary, China, and Korea will join the New York’s active dance community to offer the full range of new directions in Dance in the 21st century.

Our 2021 VDDF GALA Opening heralds the most anticipated four-day festival of contemporary dance in the greater New York City region. The GALA will feature several very highly-regarded troupes: Jennifer Muller/The Works, three of the most eclectic companies from South Korea: DAEGU CITY DANCE COMPANY, collective A|Jinyeob Cha & Theatre Mucheon|Ara Kim, and host, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company, will round out the program.

“This is a festival about opportunities,” says Young Soon Kim, Artistic Director and founder of White Wave Dance. “The DUMBO Dance Festival, (now VIRTUAL) provides an opportunity for over 350 performing artists to showcase their work. Further, it offers New York and global audiences the chance to experience one of the most diverse displays of leading-edge choreography and excellence at an affordable price.”
