2020 FALL FOR DANCE FESTIVAL ... LIVE on Stage / Watch ONLINE
Premieres Oct 21 & 26 at 7:30pm
On demand through Nov 1

City Center's first-ever digital Fall for Dance Festival features:

In their first and probably only performance together, New York City Ballet's Mearns joins American Ballet Theatre's Hallberg for a world premiere commission duet by Christopher Wheeldon. Pollack, Ashley Bouder, and Tiler Peck perform excerpts from George Balanchine's Who Cares? to George Gershwin's exuberant tunes. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's first Resident Choreographer, Roberts, explores his identity as a Black man in a self-choreographed world premiere commission solo. And Ballet Hispanico's dancers take on the electric, mambo-driven New York premiere of excerpts from 18+1 celebrating Gustavo Ramirez Sansano's 19 years as a choreographer.
