A testament to this is Green Space Blooms, a six-day "celebration of Queens dance" that kicks off April 11.The event takes places in Green's studio Green Space at 37-24 24th St. in Long Island City and will provide intimate performances of modern dance. All work featured is from an artist who either works or lives in Queens.Green and dancers from her own company, Dance Entropy, will be performing. The festival also will feature a guest choreographer each night and will follow with a reception of live music. The music and reception following each night's performances offer the perfect opportunity for the audience to study and discuss the dances with performers, Green said.It's only the second anniversary of the annual event, but already the amount of dancers involved has doubled. And if everything goes according to plan, the event will continue to grow."Dance history is being made here," Green said. "Never before have people come to LIC to see dance."
