Massachusetts Dance Festival presents its inaugural concert on Friday November 6th and Saturday, November 7th at 8:00 p.m., in the Boston University Dance Theatre, 914 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA. The program highlights many of the top professional dance companies of Massachusetts:

“BoSoma Dance Company”
“Chaos Theory Dance ”
“Collage Dance Ensemble”
“Flamenco Dance Project ”
“Hilberman & Goldberg ”
“Rainbow Tribe ”
“Snake Dance Theater”
“Sokolow Now!”
“Triveni Dance Company”

Innovative choreographies, such as “Between Lines,” which “reflects on the unseen truths of an individual's character,” choreographed by Katherine Hooper (BoSoma), and dramatic selections by Sokolov Now!, combine strength, ?physicality, and technical ?excellence, while “Snake Dance Theater” intertwines spicy Latin/Arabian ‘fusion’ movements, brandishing swords, veils, and exotic costumes. Billbob Brown, director of “Chaos Theory Dance,” combines movement, voice, video and stunning lifts, in thematic choreography based on quantum physics and astronomy. “Collage” founder and artistic director, Ahmet Luleci, harmonizes the group’s diversity through his “series of pieces that are based on bringing different cultures together,” further exemplifying the rich array of compelling artistry to be experienced during this extraordinary blending of talents.

Tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased in advance or at the door. Discounts are available for Boston Dance Alliance Members, students, senior citizens, and groups of 10 or more.

Our Mission: Massachusetts Dance Festival believes that dance, as a major component of arts and culture, is essential to meaningful lives and healthy communities. Dance and arts education contribute to quality life in the 21st Century by providing rich education for youth and promoting cultural understanding and tolerance within diverse communities.

MDF seeks to revitalize dance and arts-related professions by developing partnerships with businesses, corporations, institutions and communities. Our goal is to successfully establish dance artistically, financially and operationally, throughout the state, and thereby contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.
Through annual, statewide education workshops and performance platforms, MDF will employ dance performers, students, teachers, technicians, production workers, marketing professionals, and cultural facilities employees. Each event will attract residents, college students and tourists, contributing to access, education and diversity of the arts, while stimulating employment.

MDF can help to establish Massachusetts as an important destination for arts, culture and tourism.
