Where people of all ages come together to move, create, and explore!

Swamp Dance Fest! 2014, directed by choreographer/filmmaker Tiffany Rhynard, is a transformative four-week dance intensive intended for pre-professional and professional dancers age 16 and above. The Swamp Dance Fest! combines a rigorous schedule of classes, rehearsals, performances, artists’ talks, and special projects, culminating in a performance of works created during the festival, performed by students and guests.

We are delighted to welcome New York-based choreographers Colleen Thomas and Bill Young, recognized world wide for their company of international artists focused on rigorous physicality and dynamic partnering.

We welcome the return of groundbreaking New Jersey-based artists Joshua Bisset and Laura Quattrocchi, co-directors of the Shua Group. Their works interact with audiences in unusual settings to create deep listening, exchange and moments of transformation.
