Expanding on our mission to make the best in the performing arts accessible to all, we're launching a new program designed to bring the extraordinary artists from our stages directly to New Yorkers in their neighborhoods. The inaugural tour of City Center On the Move will immerse communities in world-class dance through a series of free performances and interactive classes featuring Bronx-born choreographer, teacher, and tap artist Ayodele Casel. A frequent City Center collaborator (¡Adelante, Cuba!, Really Rosie, Fall for Dance)and a 2017 recipient of the “Hoofer Award,” Casel will be joined by two dancers and two musicians for an exciting presentation.
In order to share Casel’s singular style with the broadest possible cross-section of New Yorkers, City Center has partnered with the NYC Parks Department to select five tour stops (one in each borough) from among their 36 recreation centers. Join us for one or all five!
