FESTIVAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM
DDCF is proud to continue its exchange program with the Dumbo Dance Festival. One Choreographer who presents their work at DDCF 2019 will be selected to showcase their work again at the Dumbo Dance Festival, which is held in a variety of New York locations. Dumbo Dance Festival is presented by WHITE WAVE.
One Choreographer from our 2019 Choreographers Showcase will also be selected to perform at DDCF 2020.
The Detroit Dance City Festival (DDCF) and South Korean-based New Dance Festival International Festival have created an international exchange initiative in order to cultivate cross-cultural artistic experiences and encourage recognition of Detroit as a global epicenter for dance. One choreographer presenting their work at the 2019 DDCF Choreographers Showcase will be selected to present their work again as a part of the New Dance Festival International Festival in South Korea next year. This is an exciting opportunity for dancers to connect and work with fellow artists from around the world.
