The Young Choreographer's Festival

Our Mission: The Young Choreographer's Festival, now in its 13th year, presents the work of some of the most up and coming 18-25year old choreographers in all genres of dance at Symphony Space in NYC. We aim to educate, foster, and cultivate talented young artists by providing them with the tools, education, resources, and platform to successfully pursue a career in dance.

YCF’s Educational Programming Element puts our young choreographers directly in contact with established professionals. We provide selected choreographers with a Mentor to help them throughout their process, private workshop classes, and an Industry Talk Back Panel.

Advisory Board: Melinda Atwood, Michele Assaf, Sheila Barker, Pam Chancey, Ginger Cox, Maurice Brandon Curry, Tabitha and Napoleon D’Umo, Andy Funk, Diane Grumet, Shelly Hutchinson, Laurie Kanyok, Diane King, Laura Diffenderfer, Bill Prudich, Doug Post, Desmond Richardson, Pascal Rekoert, Andrea Snyder, Tracie Stanfield, Wes Veldink, Kat Wildish.
