Since 2013, the annual Hudson Valley Dance Festival has been bringing world-class dance performances to the region while raising much-needed funds to help individuals living with HIV/AIDS and other debilitating illnesses. On October 7, the event will mark its 10th anniversary at Catskill Point with two talent-packed shows.
Companies and choreographers set to perform at the festival include Alison Cook Beatty Dance, Holly Curran with Dwayne Brown and Amber Neff, Doug Varone and Dancers, EMERGE125, FJK Dance, Parsons Dance, Reed Luplau with Gabriel Hyman and Stephen Hernandez, Corey John Snide, and the Verdon Fosse Legacy performing “Sweet Gwen Suite.”

Festival proceeds help ensure that those living with HIV/AIDS and other debilitating illnesses have access to lifesaving medications, counseling, healthy meals, housing, and emergency assistance through the National Grants Program of Broadway Cares. The grants support essential social services in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, DC, including 15 organizations in the Hudson Valley.
