Battery Dance Company (BDC) will host its 34th Battery Dance Festival (formerly the Downtown Dance Festival), New York’s longest running public dance festival, from August 15-20 in Robert F. Wagner, Jr. Park. The Battery Dance Festival incorporates dance companies from around the world with diverse dance backgrounds and styles. The Festival is free-of-charge to the public and offers audience members six nights of international dance performances coupled with an accessible and calm setting outdoors in Wagner Park at sunset. The performances run from 6:30-8:30 each evening. BDC also invites you to attend a special closing event at Pace University’s Schimmel Center on August 21 from 6-8:30pm. We hope you will join us in supporting the arts at this wonderful, universal celebration of dance.
