10 Years of The Young Choreographer’s Festival

Celebrating their 10th year of presenting some of the most up and coming young artists, The Young Choreographer’s Festival is producing the work of 13 18-25 year old choreographers, on June 7th. Their work is selected by a highly esteemed panel alongside 10 Alumni Guest Artists at Symphony Space in NYC! The Young Choreographer’s Festival will be held at Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Symphony Space, NYC.


This year’s performance will include the genres of Ballet, Contemporary, Modern, Jazz, Tap, Street Jazz, and Contemporary Indian.


The mission of The Young Choreographer’s Festival is to present the work of up and coming young artists (ages 18-25) and give them an opportunity and resources to further their careers.  YCF aims to educate, foster, support the cultivation of young artists in all genres of dance, and encourage the development of all choreographic voices! 


The Young Choreographer’s Festival was the brainchild of then 20-year-old choreographer Emily Bufferd. With the aid of a distinguished Advisory Board, the 1stYoung Choreographer’s Festival was presented at Symphony Space on June 6th, 2010.
