The next edition of Open Floor will not be the last Tuesday of November (as you might expect), but will rather be on Thursday December 4th, at 7 PM.
The event is a partnership between the Open Floor crew and Velocity Dance Center, centered on their Next Dance Cinema presentation, now in it’s third year as showcase for dance films by Pacific Northwest artists.
This year’s selection of independent dance films was curated by Karn Junkinsmith and the evening promises to enchant and engage audiences of dance and visual art lovers alike. Next Dance Cinema is part of Velocity’s Next Fest NW that includes live dance performances December 12, 13 & 14, at 8pm at Velocity’s MainSpace Theater.
