After a transitional 2016-2017 season, we relaunched with a renewed focused on strengthening the Queens dance scene with our work with various organization and our partnership with the Queens Dance Workshop. We also shifted our mindset to creating more site-specific and screen-dance pieces as a means of enhance our work's capacity for storytelling and reaching more a diverse audiences.
Teaming up with the Queensboro Dance Festival, we provide free rehearsal space for choreographers from various areas Queens and host two dance movement-jams for dancers and dance lovers to promote the emerging dance scene in Queens.
THE ROGUE DANCERS are a Queens based dance company founded in 2012 utilizing collaboration as a means of creating innovative work that challenge our personal notions of dance by balancing avant-garde and technical prowess. Our work is rooted in examining dance as a medium for storytelling with the goal of invoking emotional and thoughtful reactions. We draw inspiration from personal experiences, the art world, pop-culture and third wave feminism.
Choreographers present pieces that are politically charged or deeply emotional in a relaxed setting. At the end a movement-jam invites the audience to get a hands on experience on creating movement.
