Young Performers

For the first time in Red Hook Fest history, we won’t be able to host young performers on the Red Hook Fest stage. We’ve seen amazing ballet, hip hop, folk dance, and more performances from New York’s best pre-professional dancers. This year, we’ll share a tribute to some of the most powerful performances from these talented young people over our past 27 years.
