Just In: Cape Dance Festival 2017 Is July 29

The 5th annual Cape Dance Festival is coming up. It’s a highlight of my summer, made even better because my close friend Liz Wolff is a co-founder and organizer along with Stacey-Jo Marine. The event went from a gathering of local dancers on a makeshift stage to a showcase of local and national dance companies at the Province Lands Outdoor Amphitheater in Provincetown, Mass.

This year’s Cape Dance Festival’s main performance takes place Saturday evening, July 29th, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. General admission tickets are $25. You can purchase tickets online here.

This year’s roster includes dance performances by former Boston Ballet star (and current ABT principal) Jeffrey Cirio’s company Cirio Collective (his sister Lia Cirio of Boston Ballet and other Boston Ballet dancers are part of the group too); Benjamin Schultz of Martha Graham Dance Company; Catherine Cabeen – Hyphen; and others.

For younger dance enthusiasts there’s the 2nd annual Tilli’s Family Show on Sunday, July 30th at noon at Payomet Performing Arts Center in Truro, Mass. The 45-minute family-friendly program features Boston-based tapper Ryan P. Casey, whose “freakishly clean footwork” Dance Magazine called “reminiscent of Fred Astaire.”

Here are some highlights I took last year at Cape Dance Festival 2016, which featured Cirio Collective; Martha Graham Dance Company; Joshua Beamish/ MOVE: the company; Catherine Cabeen – Hyphen; and more. Hope to see you there!
