On Thursday, October 8, 2015, WHITE WAVE Dance celebrates the 15th Anniversary season of the DUMBO Dance Festival (DDF) with a Gala Opening that heralds the most anticipated four-day festival of contemporary dance in New York. Committed to the future expressions of dance, WHITE WAVE scours the world seeking the most risk-taking emerging and renowned dance makers of our time and brings them to Brooklyn for one weekend. Scroll down for a sneak peek at some of this year's companies in action!

For the first time in its history, the DUMBO Dance Festival will be presented in association with Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center. The festival will take place in the new state-of-the-art, 300-seat theater newly named Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center (formerly St. Ann's Warehouse).

The Gala features performances by the two host companies, WHITE WAVE's Young Soon Kim Dance Com-pany and Gelsey Kirkland Ballet. These two special performances will be joined by the New York premieres of works by JÁNOS FELEDI/FELEDI PROJECT (Hungary) and Oniin Dance (Italy), as well as Buglisi Dance Theatre, James Hansen, Assemblage Dance, and Maxine Steinman (New York) and Annielille Gavino-Kollman (Virginia).

With all performances free of charge, the 15th DUMBO Dance Festival features 75 contemporary dance troupes combining over 300 hundred artists who will present solo, chamber and full scale works. Dancers from across the United States, Canada, Hungary and Italy will join in with New York's active dance community to offer a snapshot of the new directions in dance in the 21st century.
