Dance Theatre

New York City is blessed with many dance theaters including the David H. Koch Theater and Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center, New York City Center,  The Joyce Theater, and BAM in Brooklyn.

New York City is home to great dance companies and producers including New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Mark Morris,  Alvin Ailey, and The Joyce Foundation.

New York City hosts great dance festivals including Fall for Dance, the Flamenco Festival, the Harkness Dance Festival, and the Battery Dance Festival. The important Jacob’s Pillow Festival is 2-1/2 hours by car.

Ballet, an Italian and French court dance, came to America through New York City. Broadway gives the City its own steps.

Social Dancing

Swing and Salsa dancing developed here. So did Disco, Punk, and Hip-Hop.

The world is here so we have Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia, Samba, Capoeira, and Tango. We have New York Salsa, Cuban Salsa, and Colombian Salsa.

Then there is clubbing and of course the Galas.
