The 23rd Annual DanceFest! will combine traditional dance forms with the unexpected: lyrical and clogging, classical and Kurdish/Turkish line dancing, contemporary and sign language. Twelve Hudson Valley dance companies will perform at McKenna Theatre at SUNY New Paltz, including a final DanceFest! performance by Figures in Flight, a youth dance troupe featuring convicted inmates through the Rehabilitation Through the Arts program. Their performance will include themes of war, suffering, separation, love, and reconciliation. Other companies include the American Youth Ballet, CaravanKids Project, and the Barefoot Dance Center. The show runs February 7 & 8. Tickets: $18 for adults, $12 for seniors/children 12 and under, are available through the individual schools and at the door. (845) 256-9300; Vanavercaravan.org.
