(Through August 18) Now in its 36th year, the Battery Dance Festival kicks off on Sunday 13 for 6 days of performances with harbor views as an added bonus. There will be performances nightly by local and international companies (full schedule is here). Sunday’s performers include dancers from Sri Lanka, who combine balletic moves with athleticism and grace; fans of modern dance will enjoy the performance by dancers from the Martha Graham School. To enter the park, walk west from the subway until you pass Historic Battery Park and see the entrance to Battery Park City.
RSVP not required for performances.
The festival also offers free public dance workshops at Battery Dance in Lower Manhattan; click here for a workshop schedule and to reserve a workshop spot.
