BAAND Together Dance Festival

August 17–21

In an unprecedented celebration of dance, Ballet Hispánico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem share the spotlight for the first time—on The Restart Stage at Damrosch Park.

The arts return to NYC as five of the city’s most iconic dance companies come together on one stage—with dancers and works from across the companies featured each night. Lincoln Center presents the BAAND Together Dance Festival, a week of outdoor dance performances as part of Restart Stages. From August 17–21, new works and repertory favorites will offer audiences the unique and exciting experience of an evening of programming curated collaboratively by the artistic directors of Ballet Hispánico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem. The Festival is made possible by CHANEL.

Restart Stages is part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative, a collaboration that reimagines cultural engagement in public space for a new era.
