The Very Best of NYC Dance

Gotham Dance Festial, Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance

Fresh off the overwhelming success of last summer’s presentation of four female choreographers, Gotham Arts Exchange presents the Gotham Dance Festival, returning to The Joyce Theater with expanded programming and a newly branded festival. Gotham Dance Festival presents six programs featuring ten choreographers from June 1–12, each of which offer a unique and riveting take on expression
through dance.

Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance presents its 8th annual season on June 1–2 at the 5th Floor Theater at NYU’s Tisch Department of Dance. The program features the world premiere of Body Talk, a collaboration with composer/performer Guillermo Brown, whose score is influenced by rock, electronica, free jazz and hip-hop. The new fusion ballet echoes our culture’s obsession with video games and the pixilated visual quality that creates broken images.
