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 virtually brings them 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. 2022 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.

“This is a festival about opportunities,” said 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.”

Our 2022 VDDF GALA Opening heralds the most anticipated four-day festival of contemporary dance in the greater New York City region. The GALA will feature six sensational contemporary dance troupes: Hyonok Kim Dance Arts, Buglisi Dance Theatre, Barkin/Selissen Project, and three of the most eclectic companies from South Korea: chagmu center|KIM / MEA JA, UBIN Dance|Na-Hyun Lee & Theatre Mucheon|Ara Kim, and WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company.

This year, WHITE WAVE Dance will select two outstanding companies to have the opportunity to perform at the 2023 New Dance Festival in Korea, and at the 2022 Detroit City Dance Festival. Both of these highly regarded festivals will provide companies with another fantastic opportunity for further exposure, promotion, and performances. All participating VDDF companies will be carefully considered and will be notified after the grand finale performance.
