Held at WHITE WAVE’s John Ryan Theater, only 1 stop from Downtown Manhattan, this year’s DDF features over 75 companies with 350 performing artists.

Aside from the Opening Night GALA Benefit, all performances are presented FREE OF CHARGE to the public! We also offer a special family-friendly program on Sunday, Sept. 28 from noon to 3pm during which kids can participate in a free one hour Hip-Hop/Modern Dance class, before watching the best in contemporary dance take the stage for an exciting program!

The festival runs concurrently with the DUMBO Arts Festival, transforming our waterfront neighborhood into the single largest forum for experimental art in the United States!

WHITE WAVE’s annual GALA is a thrilling night of celebration which opens our Fall Season. The evening will be hosted by a guest celebrity (TBA). We have selected two of our most distinguished supporters to honor the great impact they have had in furthering our mission this year.

The evening will feature six stunning contemporary dance troupes: L2Dance Theater, Heather Roffe, Clairobscur Dance Company, Nathan Madden, KDNY, Sue Samuel’s Jazz Roots Dance Company and WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company.

Afterwards, the audience will enjoy a reception with a buffet dinner of exotic Korean cuisine and a fabulous raffle (including gourmet wine baskets, “dinner for two” at local DUMBO eateries and much more)!

Tickets start at $100 per person; all proceeds raised will directly off- set WHITE WAVE’s production costs for our 2014/15 Season.

Please join us for this great night of art and celebration!
Your participation will make a huge impact on our ability to present and promote rising dancemakers.

2014 WRS Companies (Selection)

WHITE WAVE hosts and produces its 2014 WAVE RISING SERIES featuring 19 companies / choreographers in 19 performances in its renowned three week festival.
