An annual Harlem dance festival is back in full force later this month.

MOTHERSHIP THREE takes participants on an interactive journey through music and dance, combining afro-dance, hip-hop, vogue, house, praise and more in an outdoor celebration of sound and community. Hosted by the Harlem Dance Club, the event will take place on September 18.

“The Harlem Dance Club’s annual MOTHERSHIP Festival is a celebration of the healing that occurs when we come together as a community to honor art, music and dance. We hope the joy this brings will be a welcome respite from the realities of a very difficult year, ”said John Doyle, artistic director and co-founder of the Harlem Dance Club.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. with a set by DJ Steph Stylez, followed by guest performances at 4 p.m. DJ KS 360 and DJ Johnny D will take the stage at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. respectively.

MOTHERSHIP THREE will also feature performances by Neko Milan, Area Collective, Bad, Sanskriti Dance, Batala New York, Fanny System and Cesar Valentino. The event is made possible with the support of the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city.
