In keeping with the Festival’s commitment to make dance accessible to everyone, the Festival kicked off in early September with two free evenings of dance in Central Park, and will continue at City Center from October 8–19 with five unique programs (each program is repeated twice). The Festival’s many free pre-show events will include dance lessons and panels by choreographers, artists and dance educators.
