As the ground thaws and the landscape begins to come alive again, so too does the local arts and culture scene. March in the Hudson Valley is jam-packed with fun events from Restaurant Week to a wide variety of dance performances. Here are 8 Hudson Valley events to pencil in.

DANCE

Tibetan Ritual Dance for Peace

On March 10, Lin Lerner and the New York Lingdro Troupe will bring the Tibetan ritual dance, Lingdro Dechen Rolmo, to West Hurley. Celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Earth Pig and remember the Tibetan Uprising Day, when the Chinese Communists took over Tibet. The Lingdro is a sacred dance that brings together male and female dancers in a moving meditation, dressed in colorful costumes as they step, stamp, hop, and whirl. The festival is named after Ling Gesar, the warrior-king in Asian epics most often compared to King Arthur. The dance, said to send peaceful energy around the world during unstable times and prevent war and bloodshed, will be performed at the Tibetan Center.

COMEDY

Comedy Night at Phoenicia Playhouse

Veterans of the New York City comedy circuit, husband and wife Max Cohen and Vicky Kuperman noticed on their many visits upstate that the Hudson Valley was sorely lacking a comedy scene. So the couple decided to organize a stand-up comedy series at the historic Phoenicia Playhouse, showcasing the best comedic talent both from the surrounding area and New York City. Comedian Joe Devito will headline the show on March 16, delivering his quick, witty commentary on everything from relationships to current events to his Italian American family. $20.
