Fall for Dance Festival

New York City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival has received international acclaim for its quality, innovation, and success in introducing new and younger audiences to the world of dance. Since its inception eleven years ago, Fall for Dance has presented 190 companies and artists and introduced more than 275,000 newcomers and dance enthusiasts to an eclectic mix of choreographers and performers.

The 12th annual Fall for Dance Festival ran from September 30 – October 11, 2015, and featured commissioned works choreographed by Michelle Dorrance and Pam Tanowitz, as well as dance companies from Brazil, India, Israel, and beyond. The pre-show panel discussions included a conversation with Stephen Petronio and Stanton Welch and a conversation about the origins and future of urban dance.

Fall for Dance Patrons Committee

The Fall for Dance Patrons Committee was created to provide dance lovers with a fantastic behind-the-scenes look at this remarkable event, while helping to underwrite the Festival’s low ticket price. Fall for Dance Patrons Committee members enjoy a wealth of benefits during the Festival and throughout the year, and have the opportunity to watch dress rehearsals, and meet choreographers and dance professionals. They also have access to house seating throughout the Festival and receive invitations to the Festival’s Opening Night Celebration.

As honorary members of City Center’s President’s Council, Committee members receive access to house seats for all of City Center’s engagements throughout the season and invitations to intimate dinners and events at City Center during the year. Committee membership begins at $2500. For more information or to join, please call Karla Salguero, Assistant Director of Individual Giving, at 212.763.1228.
