About The Festival

The legacy of dance in Jamaica, Queens is rich — including names like Bernice Johnson and Gloria Jackson — but only somewhat storied. It is time to celebrate Jamaica’s rich dance legacy, and to do so in grand fashion!

A Better Jamaica will do so by presenting an annual dance festival — The Jamaica Dance Festival.

The inaugural festival will take place in the Summer of 2016, with a series of five consecutive Saturday evening performances that will take place in Rufus King Park — on the front lawn of Rufus King’s storied manor house.

The Jamaica Dance Festival is Free and Open to the Public!
