3 Contemporary Dance Project

Now Accepting Applications for 2019 Choreographers!

One of the goals of Refuge Dance Company is to present dances that engage and connect with the audience. 3 Contemporary Dance Project is one of our recurring programs that allows three choreographers to do just that with each choreographer creating a medium length piece in the 20-30 minute range.

Past 3’s have included works by Dana Woodruff, Angella Foster, Lane Grosser, Lonnie Davis, and Katherine Gant.

For 2019, 3 Contemporary Dance Project will be October 18, 19, and 20 and we are celebrating it being our third 3 by mixing things up a bit. We will be presenting a different program each of the three evenings - a 3 by 3 if you will.
