Dance!

 

Fans of dance, listen up! Head to Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center next week for the BAAND Together Dance Festival, where five of New York City's most prestigious dance companies will perform together in five free (yep, you read that right, FREE) shows from August 9th through August 13th.

The companies represent the best of the best: Alvin Ailey, American Ballet Theatre, Ballet Hispánico, New York City Ballet and the Dance Theatre of Harlem. 

What a treat to see them perform together! Each program will be a tad different, but all include a performance of Annabelle Lopez Ochoá's One for All that will feature dancers from all five troupes, and is set to the track Manteca by Funkly Lowlives featuring Dizzy Gillespie. 

Admission is for the most part on a first come, first served basis, but you can reserve early beginning at noon on August 8th by following the instructions here.  If you head to Lincoln Center in the afternoon throughout the festival, you can take advantage of educational workshops being offered.
