RIOULT Dance NY’s “Fables” celebrates the timeless stories common among the many cultures found in the borough of Queens. Inspired by the rhythmic narrative of Jean de La Fontaine’s “Fables,” choreographer Pascal Rioult brings to life familiar tales, such as the “Crow and the Fox,” the “Tortoise and the Hare,” and others. A program of the Queens Borough Community Dance Project, Fables will include young dancers from the community dancing alongside the professional dancers from RIOULT.

RIOULT Dance NY is coming to Astoria in the fall. The company, school and performance space will open up in the new building at Steinway and 34th Avenue, an 11,000-square¬ foot facility, designed expressly for dance, in the Kaufman Arts District.
