New York City has always been associated with cutting-edge dance. This also concerns the annual Fall for Dance Festival which brings together the best highlights of modern ballet. During two weeks in October, The Fall for Dance Festival takes place in Midtown, Manhattan, and presents five programs with four world-class dance companies, each for just $15. The performances include dance world stars from New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theater. The festival features African, Argentine, Brazilian, Cuban, French, Mexican & Romanian dancers or dance companies performing in ballet, modern, contemporary and folkloric genres.
Don't miss world-premiere commissions with stars like Gemma Bond, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Justin Peck, Sonya Tayeh, Caleb Teicher and Jennifer Weber. Performances by the Paul Taylor Dance Company and the National Ballet of China are also worth seeing. 10-day Fall for Dance Festival was established in 2004 to introduce new audiences to dance, inspired by the Delacorte Dance Festival in 1960-1970s. Fall for Dance is famous for its intentionally affordable tickets, and geographic and stylistic diversity. The tickets sell out fast, so don't hesitate to book early.
