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 at Lincoln Center’s BAAND Together Dance Festival. August 17 features the following programming (*subject to change):

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Lazarus (excerpt); Choreographed by Rennie Harris

This excerpt is from the second half of Lazarus, the acclaimed work by hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris. Lazarus, the first 2-act ballet created for the Ailey company, completes a trilogy — which also includes Exodus and Home – and is inspired by the life and times of Alvin Ailey. It addresses racial inequities in America when Mr. Ailey founded his company in 1958 as well as today. Learn more.

New York City Ballet
Ces Noms Que Nous Portons; 
Choreographed by Kyle Abraham
In tribute to LGBTQ Pride Month in 2020, Choreographer Kyle Abraham and NYCB Principal Dancer Taylor Stanley joined forces for a powerful collaboration. The piece was filmed at the Lincoln Center fountain amidst the Pride light installation. In a statement about the work, the artists revealed their intent to "celebrate our queerness and our color in a way that hopefully stresses its importance, its fragility, and its strength. We create dances for those who have yet to see themselves on a stage.” To see the world premiere dance on film performance of Ces Noms Que Nous Portons, and to read the full statement from Kyle and Taylor click here.

Dance Theatre of Harlem
Harlem on my Mind (excerpt); 
Choreographed by Darrell Grand Moultrie
“This work was created to celebrate the memory of my beloved music teacher Ms. Gwendolyn McLoud. She loved Jazz music and made sure her students in Harlem were exposed to its history and brilliance. I would love to keep sharing this great music with the next generation.” - Darrell Grand Moultrie

American Ballet Theatre
Let Me Sing Forevermore
Choreographed by Jessica Lang
Jessica Lang’s spirited and romantic Let Me Sing Forevermore is set to a medley of American popular songs as sung by Tony Bennett (“Steppin’ Out With My Baby,” “Fly Me To The Moon” and “I Got Rhythm”). The pas de deux melds ballet and jazz dance vocabulary. Let Me Sing Forevermore received its World Premiere on March 23, 2019 at the Erik Bruhn Competition in Toronto, Canada performed by Catherine Hurlin and Aran Bell. The work had its U.S. Premiere in Chicago on April 12, 2019 at the Auditorium Theatre with the same cast. Let Me Sing Forevermore received its New York Premiere by American Ballet Theatre on October 16, 2019 at the David H. Koch Theater, New York, danced by Catherine Hurlin and Aran Bell.

Ballet Hispánico
18+1Choreographed by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano

18+1 celebrates Gustavo’s 19 years as a choreographer and the vulnerability, care, and hope that comes with each artistic endeavor. In a display of subtle humor and electric choreography, the movement merges with the playful rhythms found in Pérez Prado’s mambo music. Sansano draws from his history and memory to take a joyous look at the past, present, and coming future.
