SHIFT DANCE COLLECTIVE
SHIFT is a collective for networking and collaboration, a vessel through which the artists involved will be able to make real connections with their audiences. Our goal is to make an everlasting effort to connect to the community of not only Brooklyn, or New York, but to other artistic communities who wish to exchange ideas and information. While SHIFT is predominantly dance-focused, we draw on exploring heavy collaborative effort from other artistic mediums such as music, visual art, spoken word, and more.
