A new emphasis for JK&A’s eighth annual Booking Dance Festival is its educational outreach program, inviting young students throughout the NYC metropolitan area to view the performance for free, inspiring a new generation of artists.





"Our company has been showcasing at APAP for over 30 years and I must say that this was the most pleasant and civilized showcase event. Your staff and volunteers were wonderful and the tech crew was very nice to work with. I especially appreciate how your programming and ambiance brings an artful touch to an evening performance… rather than showcases that can feel like cold business transactions."

Taras Lewyckyj PhD
Artistic Director
Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble


"Eisenhower Dance Detroit has been showcasing APAP for the last 10 years and Booking Dance Festival is by far the best experience yet! The staff is efficient, friendly and organized and the venue is BREATHTAKING! Every year the is audience packed with presenters and patrons and the dancers love performing with view of New York City as a backdrop. Booking Dance Festival is definitely something EDD looks forward to doing every year!"
