The Dance DiversityTour, hosted by Beyond Dance, is a dance experience that in 2017 will travel to four cities across the U.S. or more upon demand. In each city on the tour, an array of dance companies and individuals of various genres of dance, backgrounds and ethnicities, will come together for one night to perform and expose the audience as well as their performance peers to an array of diversiy within the dance world. This is some in hopes to make spectators aware of dance genres they may be unfamiliar with, appreciating all forms of dance, as well as striking an interest to further explore the art of dance and all it has to offer.
The Dance Diversity Tour had a succesful run in Philadelphia with two sold out shows in APRIL 2016. So we are bringing it back on MARCH 26th, 2017 with some returning dancers and new dancers/performers. This show is combination of different dance companies of many genres and styles, with each piece sure to leave the audience entertained.
This years participants include Beyond Dance Company, LMD Dance, Vanessa Long Dance Company, Joe Monteleone, Amber Hongsemeier, Opus 1 Dance Project, Equilibrium Dance Academy, Yuki: Performing Artistry, Westley Youno and company, Michael & Leilani, Kevin Solis Zeledon and RHEMix of Arts And more.

Azru Soni: Kemetic Reiki Healing
"Energy Healing In The Form Of "Laying Hands" Is An Art That Has Been Practiced Throughout Ancient Times Whether By The Yogis Of India Or The High Priest Of Kemet. But the purpose of this healing is to raise ones vibrations, free up unwanted energy, reveal hidden messages, tune one in to higher frequencies, the purpose of energy healing is endless and reflects the situation of the one being healed"

Ars Nova Workshop and Painted Bride Art Center are pleased to present inventive saxophonist Steve Lehman’s Sélébéyone, an idiom-spanning new project combining modern jazz, underground hip-hop, Senegalese rap and live electronics to create a unique form of urban experimentalism.
Lehman’s music has always drawn from disparate sources in distinctive ways, but with Sélébéyone he has crafted a singular new crossing of musical streams. The project stands apart from past attempts to meld jazz and hip-hop, with the hybrid’s musical elements - shifting rhythms, electro-acoustic harmonies, and contemporary sound design - wholly integrated into the lyrical content. The project, which also juxtaposes English and Wolof lyrics, is not Lehman’s first plunge into the world of hip-hop; his acclaimed octet has recorded arrangements of songs by the Wu-Tang Clan and Camp Lo, while he has enjoyed a variety of collaborations with Meshell Ndegeocello since 2004.

RED BARAAT FESTIVAL OF COLORS is a celebration of HOLI, a Hindu holiday marked by public gatherings of families, friends, and strangers rejoicing in song, dance, and the exchange of “colors." The holiday signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and an opportunity to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive.
The festival debuted in 2012 at a sold out Le Poisson Rouge in New York City and has since expanded to cities nationwide. This year's iteration will take place in NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, Boston, Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia and beyond.
Bandleader and dhol player Sunny Jain curates a night of music highlighting the South Asian Diaspora in America. Past lineups have included DJ Rekha, Falu, Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi (a film by the late, award-winning filmmaker, Prashant Bhargava, and Grammy-nominated pianist/composer, Vijay Iyer), Brooklyn Raga Massive, Mandeep Sethi, Parijat Desai Dance Company, Rupa & The April Fishes and Madame Gandhi.
Special guests for the 2017 Red Baraat Festival of Colors will be announced soon! This tour is in conjunction with the release of the band’s new album BHANGRA PIRATES on Rhyme & Reason Records.

Most recently, the multi-faceted Uribe put together a smaller ensemble that highlights his songwriting and the presence of the accordion. This new format differs from the big band in its more compact size and organic style. However it stays true to its leader's danceable rhythm. Having introduced this new music in latest tour, which included Brown University, Gregorio Uribe is currently in the process of recording his next self-composed album.
Gregorio has been a guest artist with Latin icon Carlos Vives on several occasions including Madison Square Garden. He was also named by the government of Colombia as one of the "100 most successful Colombians abroad"
