Five of NYC’s most iconic dance companies—Ballet Hispánico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem—return for the third annual BAAND Together Dance Festival, sharing the spotlight and an outdoor stage as a part of Lincoln Center’s second annual Summer for the City. From July 25–29, audiences will be treated to exciting evenings of programming curated collaboratively by the artistic directors of the companies, while each afternoon, one of the companies will bring its unique teaching style to campus with a daily Education Workshop. All performances and workshops are free.

The Festival is made possible by CHANEL, representing the third year of the House’s support of the BAAND Together Dance Festival. This partnership reflects CHANEL’s long-standing patronage within the world of dance, which has continued for over a century.

Beloved as a vital “American cultural ambassador to the world,” the Company embarks on its first International Tour since the onset of the pandemic from August 23 – September 23, traveling to Edinburgh, Scotland, Copenhagen, Denmark, London, England, and Tel Aviv, Israel.  A milestone 65th anniversary season comes to New York City Center from November 29 – December 31, featuring a variety of world premieres, new productions and special programs during a five-week engagement. Further details to be announced.
