Queer Dance in Progress
Queer Dance In Progress is Dancing Queerly’s new program offering self-identified LBGTQIA+ dance artists a chance to share works-in-progress and support each other with feedback. Dancing Queerly is all about more opportunities to dance, perform, and share. As working artists, Dancing Queerly co-producers J. Michael Winward and Maggie Cee are excited to create space for practice outside of a formal education setting that’s not tied to a specific performance opportunity. Queer Dance In Progress is a free (donations welcome) chance for up to 6 artists or groups to share up to 10 minutes of work and receive 10-20 minutes of feedback from peers in a spacious studio/theater environment. Slots are first-come, first served.
Dancing Queerly is an annual festival in Cambridge, MA featuring workshops, mixers, discussions, and performances by and for the LGBTQIA+ community, friends, and allies.
Dancing Queerly’s mission is to bring LGBTQIA+ folks with varying dance experience together in the joy of dance as audience members and participants.
Dancing Queerly, 2019 is made possible in part thanks to: fiscal sponsorship of Boston Dance Alliance, grant from Boston Pride Community Fund, fundraising efforts of Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Community Fund grant from Cambridge Community Foundation, Mass Cultural Council Festival Programs grant, New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies, and ongoing support from The Dance Complex.
