The Artistry of Global Dance Springs to Life at the 37th Annual Battery Dance Festival

Battery Dance, in association with Battery Park City Authority, announces the 37th Annual Battery Dance Festival. Don’t miss free performances on August 12-17, 2018, from 7pm to 9pm against the breathtaking backdrop of the New York Harbor, culminating in a closing event and reception on August 18 at The Schimmel Center at Pace University.

Established by Battery Dance in 1982, the Battery Dance Festival (BDF) is New York City's longest-running free public dance festival. Audiences are traditionally drawn from the large downtown working population and residents, families, tourists, senior citizens and dance fans from the greater NYC metropolitan area. Each year, the Festival attracts a combined audience of over 12,000 people.

The Battery Dance Festival provides a unique opportunity for both established and emerging dance companies to present original works of high artistic merit in a free public forum. American choreographers such as Michelle Dorrance, Robert Battle, Jacqulyn Buglisi and Elisa Monte have all presented their works alongside pre-eminent companies from Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and the Caribbean.

This year's featured artists include the best of New York City as well as dancers from Botswana, Canada, Gabon, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Spain, Turkey and a collection of India's greatest Kathak dancers. If you’re a fan of the arts, you won’t want to miss this spectacular showing of the world’s greatest dance acts.
