The 6th edition of TEDxAsburyPark will be themed ‘Passion.

Passion drives ideas, people, and communities to action. TEDxAsburyPark discovered and curated more than 25 speakers, entertainers, and artists who will share their Passion stories on the historic Paramount Theatre stage at this all-day event.


“Dance artists over 50 years of age who have repeatedly performed at the top of their game from show to show, company to company, stage to stage, have survived on the passion of what they do and own. They have not only persevered time and convention, but they have withstood the test of time by defying what some see as the limitations of age. For these extraordinarily talented artists, age is not an obstacle when it comes to achieving sustained artistic discovery and excellence.”

Initiated and organized by Michael Blake in collaboration with Sarita Allen, Hope Clarke, Alberto del Saz and David Thomson, with dramaturgical assistance from Netta Yerushamy.
