Yes, folks. In a town so nice they named it twice and one with such a vibrant underground house dance community, I guess it had to happen sooner or later.
On the footsteps of the 1st ever New York Dance Parade back in May, the 1st Annual House Dance Festival will hit New York next week (July 11th through the 14th). Full details here as well as on the organizer's MySpace page here.
The Village Voice also has a preview here. And yes, the ladies of Mawu will be there probably putting everyone on "So You Think You Can Dance" AND their mom to shame. Quentin Harris is amongst the participating DJ's.
