Against The Grain/Men in Dance is a biennial Festival that celebrates and promotes the performance of male dance artists of all genres and ages. At the 10th Anniversary Festival in 2014 Anne Green Gilbert was awarded the Lawrence Tenney Stevens American Dance Award in 2014 for her work with boys and men in dance
Six Kaleidoscope Dance Company boys and teens have been invited to perform the moving and powerful piece Comradery in the Men in Dance Festival 2016.  Choreographed by Portland-based Dance Artist Michael Garber, Comradery is a piece about the disconnect that society has created for boys and men from their qualities of nurturing, softness, creativity, and expression. It shows the vibrancy and fullness they possess when they connect to their authentic Self and express these qualities freely and support one another.
