The Capital Region Dance Season Calendar has been on hold for two years. The Covid 19 Pandemic forced dance venues to forgo their concert series and live dance performances were not offered in the four counties that make up New York’s Capital Region. There is a promise of a vibrant, full dance season in 2022/23 and the Capital Region Dance Season will return. Ten dance presenters will submit their dance offerings to the document. A four-color mail friendly calendar will be produced, mailed to 6,000 homes, tabled at dance friendly gathering places. The calendar is a cooperative project, bringing disparate arts organizations around the table to celebrate touring and local dance companies and independent artists. The calendar will be posted on the local Dance Alliance website and featured on social media. Dance audiences have been hibernating for two years and are ready to return to the theater. The Capital Region Dance Season Calendar is a took that will enhance access for individual ticket buyers, not-for-profit organizations, universities and more.
