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 100 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 12 years and we are excited about the opportunities and community that we are privileged to create for emerging dance artists.



The Dance Gallery Festival depends on gifts from many generous organizations and individuals. Your contribution supports the creation of new work, brings artists from around the country and world to audiences in New York and Texas, and helps provide exposure for emerging and established artists.
