The Outlet Dance Project is an annual festival dedicated to providing women choreographers of all dance genres an opportunity to share their artistic vision. Through partnership with Grounds For Sculpture, community outreach, interdisciplinary collaboration, and performance, The Outlet Dance Project strives to enrich the region with dance.

This year’s live performances are choreographed by Belle Alvarez, Zakiya Atkinson, Heidi Cruz-Austin, Melissa Chisena, Taylor Donofrio, Caitlin Dutton, Monica Gonzalez, Heather Harrington, Emma Kimball, Cleo Mack, Boroka Nagy, Hilary Pierce, Donna Salgado, Svea Schneider, Meredith Stapleton, and Ayana Wildgoose. Four of the selected choreographers have been commissioned by Grounds For Sculpture and The Outlet Dance Project, which has been funded in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts to create new work in dialogue with this season’s one-of-a-kind installation, Force of Nature, 白 Shiro, by Jae Ko.
The following sculptures will be featured in site-specific choreography: Ex-haltations by Linda Fleming, The Awakening by Seward Johnson, Force of Nature, 白 Shiro by Jae Ko, Passage by Kevin Lyles, The Couple by John Martini, The Oligarchs by Michelle Post, Bull 4 & Bull 5 by Peter Woytuk, and Allentown Council by Glenn Zweygardt
