The Provincetown Theater is thrilled to partner with the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill in producing this year’s annual Provincetown Dance Festival. Now in its 13 th season, the festival will include seven
companies, totaling some 20 dancers of various and eclectic styles and disciplines for two performances only: Friday, June 22nd and Saturday, June 23 rd at 7:30pm at the Provincetown Theater at 238 Bradford Street, Provincetown, MA. The 2018 line-up includes seven dance companies or solo artists who celebrate the broad landscape of today’s national dance scene. Performances will include classical Indian, tap, ballet, hip-hop and contemporary.  New at this year’s festival are artists representing the leading edge in contemporary
dance. These includes three works by some of today’s next generation of contemporary dance creators, including a duet by Gisela Creus and Danielle Davidson, a work by Pavement Dance, and a work by the dynamic solo artist, Dion Pratt. Returning this year is
audience favorite CaseClosed!, a youth oriented dance troupe Directed by Sokeo Ros --
who mentors and collaborates to realize works that fuse his Cambodian cultural roots
with hip-hop and contemporary dance. Also on board is the new dance company, City

Ballet Boston, who will perform as part of its introduction to the New England dance
community. Orlando Hernandes, a dazzling tap artist from Providence, RI joins the
festival for the first time this year, too. And also debuting this year will be the classical
Indian artist from Boston, Mouli Pal. Along with being a supremely accomplished
classical artist, Pal performs works with a unique contemporary perspective on the great
legacy of classical Indian dance.

This year’s festival is dedicated to the memory of Samuel A. Miller, who
for many decades was one of New England’s most influential forces in dance. Among his
many accomplishments, Miller served as Director of Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and
Executive Director of both the New England Foundation for the Arts and the Lower
Manhattan Cultural Council. He founded the National Dance Project and the Institute for
Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University. Miller spent some of nearly
every summer on the Outer Cape. His vision, commitment, and influence has enriched
our community for many years, and will spirit us into the future for many, many more to
come.
