NYC contemporary dance = ethnic dance?

I performed tonight in Santa Fe on a mixed-bill choreography showcase, and I felt the concepts I was working with could just as easily been coming from another country. I did some things that I find to be pretty common in NYC dance. I looked at my audience, I left space in my score for nothing to happen on stage, I limited my movements to only those necessary, and did nothing to inspire envy of real or feigned athletic prowess.

Their kind, yet shell-shocked faces, led me to wonder…

Should NYC contemporary dance be billed as ethnic dance when presented outside of NYC?
