Fresh Dance Friday is an informal, free performance series at Green Street Street Studios. It provides local artists the opportunity to show work in progress and receive feedback, as well as a casual welcoming environment for dance audiences new and old to see new dances, ask questions and make connections. All performances are at 2pm unless otherwise noted. (Family Friendly)
