We are thrilled to announce Gianna as the 2022 Ardsley Residency Artist. She will be in residence at the Catskill Art Space from October 15-22, 2022.




The Dance Gallery Festival was created in 2007 by Astrid von Ussar and Mojca Ussar and has since become a well-known festival with annual showcases in New York City and Texas. Since its inception, the festival has featured more than 500 artists and grown from a single showcase to a festival with performances in NYC and Texas, residency programs for choreographers, and free masterclasses for both NYC and Texas communities. The Festival has been running for the past 15 years and we are excited about the opportunities and community that we are privileged to create for emerging dance artists.


Thanks for joining!
