In response to the growing community of choreographers and dance artists in Queens and a lack of a specific Queens borough dance festival, Dance Entropy inaugurated the Green Space Blooms Dance Festival in April 2007.  Growing each year, the seventh annual Green Space Blooms will feature 40 diverse choreographers as well as resident company Valerie Green/Dance Entropy. Completing each evening is a live music post performance party, sharing music from a different ethnic or classical tradition each night, curated by Open Music Education.  The festival brings New York City-wide attention to Long Island City as a destination for quality, thought provoking dance and music.
