Trapeze acts, more than 200 dancers, 60 choreographers and seven days of performances? Is this a new reality show?

Not, it’s the Cool New York Dance Festival, a weeklong celebration featuring dozens of modern dance companies at DUMBO’s White Wave Performance Space.

Now in its fourth year, the festival prides itself on being “a place for the dance community to come together and share ideas,” according to Festival Director Liz Flynn. “What we do is allow emerging choreographers a platform to present their work. Our doors are always open to young artists.”

Included in the spectacle will be the Amy Marshall Dance Company, which Flynn calls “a shining new star in the New York dance community.” Also not to be missed are the aforementioned trapeze pieces (or, as the dance crowd calls them, “aerial works”), one of which is being put together by White Wave’s artistic director Young Soon Kim.

Cool New York 2007 Dance Festival will take place at the White Wave’s John Ryan Theater (25 Jay St. between John and Plymouth streets). Performances are scheduled for Jan. 25–28 and Feb. 1–4 beginning at 7 pm and 9 pm Thursday through Saturday, and at 4 pm and 6 pm Sunday. Tickets are free, donations encouraged.
