The Orange County Arts Council will hold its third Orange County Dance Celebration on April 27th, at 3pm at the Paramount Theatre in Middletown, NY to coincide with National Dance Week. All Orange County dance companies and dance studios have been invited to participate in this one day performance.

Highlights of this year’s performance will include Step it Up Dance Production’s performance of “Intention” which will also be performed in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Fringe Festival in August of 2014. Volute Dance will be premiering works, “Back to Black” and “All of Me” at this year’s performance. Orange County Arts Council arts administrator Jen D’Andrea believes, “The performance has grown each year and has attracted a wide array of diverse forms of dance. Each year I am more and more amazed at the talent Orange County holds.”
The Orange County Dance Celebration gives dancers who live in Orange County an opportunity to perform in a county-wide performance that will increase visibility to the general public and provide an opportunity for self-expression. All pieces presented are choreographed and performed by artists living or working in Orange County. The Orange County Arts Council hopes that by bringing together dancers from all areas of the county, collectively they will demonstrate the beauty and artistic merits of dance and encourage the community to see local dance as a true art form.
The Orange County Arts Council invites all supporters and dance appreciators to join us as we celebrate dance as an art form and raise public awareness of the artistic beauty, local availability and fundamental benefits of dance.
Tickets will be general admission and are $15
