"ArtLab J and the Detroit Dance City Festival are aimed to make the dance scene more visible ... creating a space where people can witness the great things that are happening within the city of Detroit."

Dancers and dance troupes from Detroit are joining troupes from around the world for a series of performances during the Detroit Dance City Festival.

An ambitious and still pretty new-ish dance organization called ArtLab J is producing the fest.

Marcus White is the communications liaison for the festival. He recently spoke about the festival and the ongoing work of Artlab J with Travis Wright, host of WDET's Culture City.
