The Downtown Dance Festival is NYC’s longest-running dance festival.
On August 25, at 7 pm, “Tangaj Dance” will be at the RCI New York Auditorium, for the screening of “Silent Places” and for a Q&A session about modern choreography, their dance projects and their first participation at “The 33rd Annual Downtown Dance Festival” in New York City.
