BCF is Bustin’ out of February!
The Black Choreographers Festival: Here & Now just celebrated its 10 year Anniversary!
As we embark on the next 10 years – we are looking to expand the way we present our programming, support artists, and nurture our community partnerships.
We are in the midst of creating a new structure for BCF this year - spreading our Festival series of performances, master classes, artist opportunities throughout the year.
BCF Oakland – plans are in the works to present a summer concert series at Laney College. Look out for details, coming soon!
West Wave Dance Festival, BCF Edition - in November, this will be the venue for our Artists Mentoring Program (AMP), with community events: public forums and work-in-progress showings, in conjunction with dynamic concerts featuring emerging choreographers participating in AMP. This opportunity made possible through an invitation and new community partnership with WWDF, presenter Joe Landini.
Bustin’ out of February is a way for us to "grow" - to provide more visibility to artists, to expand our community partnerships, and to increase programmatic and support mechanisms throughout the year, that align with our mission.
AAAPAC and K*Star*Productions have always been fluid about the approach to programming the festival each year - doing what is best to support choreographers and community…keeping the vision forward.
