2018-2019 season

22nd Detroit Dance Race

Youth & Professional Dance

March 23rd, 2019, 7p.m. @ Marygrove College Theater

ArtLab J was founded in 2012 to provide a space for performing artists to create and develop new works in Detroit. So to give these emerging and professional choreographers an opportunity and location to present their work, we created the Detroit Dance Race. We named it Detroit Dance Race because like the motor-city, we want dance to be continuously growing, changing, and building up our community.

One of the performances will be chosen by the audience to return and perform at the Detroit Institute of Arts with ArtLab J  in the 2019 Detroit Dance City Festival


Youth - ArtLab J II, Arts Academy in the Woods Dance Company, Living Arts Youth Dance Ensemble

Professional -  Alexandria Soria, ArtLab J I, Ballet Edge Detroit, Cathy And Company, Hannah Rohen, HBY Ensemble, Jessica Thomas, Julia Moore and Natalie Wardlaw, Karen Callaway Williams, Kirdaysha Gatlin, Lizz Piskor, Olivia Bonich, Sophia and El Kronox, Suttle Dance Company

Congratulations ‘PEOPLE CHOICE AWARD’
