For centuries, tales of Anansi, the clever trickster spider, have been spun a million different ways. But now Uzuri Dance Theater has woven humor, music and pure visual spectacle into a vibrant new telling like no other: Anansi the Spider: An African Folktale.
Thanks to imaginative costume design and an innovative use of black lights, this classic folktale from the Ashanti people literally glows with imagination. Laugh along with the fearless and sly arachnid as he uses jokes and brains to realize his goals. Live African percussion and traditional West African dance enrich his ad
A Night of Broadway Hits in Concert!
The ButtCracker is a comical, parody, pseudo musical "danc-ical" play set in modern day New York City, loosely spoofing not only the story of the Nutcracker ballet but also all of the popular dance/movies/television shows spanning the last few decades. Juxtaposing the themes of Footloose, Dirty Dancing, Fame, Flashdance, and many others, the plot creates the antics of "Crashdance," "Prancing with the Stars," "Cutloose," "Lord of the Pants," and "Saturday Night Beaver," in an uproarious journey including men in tights and Tutu's, dueling ballerinas, and disco fever gone awry. This show leaves you wondering, WAS it just a dream or did something "funny" happen on the way to the ballet?
Our larger than life production of the classic fairy tale is set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev and brings to the stage dancers, puppets, a fifteen foot-tall Fairy Godmother and a twenty-foot-long Magic Dragon! Dancers become winged horses and party guests become baby mice in this fabulous program.
Created especially for families with children ages five to ten, The Colonial Nutcracker sets Tchaikovsky's classic ballet in wintry colonial Yorktown during the Revolutionary War. The production features classics such as "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" and "Waltz of the Snowflakes," a red-coated mouse army, an enchanted nutcracker prince, and compelling narration that will enhance young viewers' understanding and enjoyment of this timeless story. Rose Menes' delightful staging and choreography, coupled with colorful costumes and Tchaikovsky's enduring score, will captivate audiences of all ages.
New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) continues it long-running series Dance on a Shoestring, now held at the company's new home at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery,
Dance on a Shoestring is an intimate evening of dance held in the company's home, The Dance Gallery. The community series showcases ballets from New York Theatre Ballet's current season, works in progress by contemporary and emerging choreographers, and children of Ballet School NY.
The Little Orchestra Society, in association with New York City Center, presents a new program based on stories about our planet inspired by ancient and timeless animal fables from around the globe. Choreographer Karole Armitage's work fuses ballet and modern dance with the stunning theatricality of Cirque du Soleil.
Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. Here Lies Love is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play nor a traditional musical but an immersive theatrical event combining songs influenced by four decades of dance music, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda's near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore the tragic consequences of the abuse of power.
A holiday mash-up for the whole family, "The Hip Hop Nutcracker" reimagines Tchaikovsky's classic score through explosive hip hop choreography. A dozen all-star dancers, DJ, MC, and digital scenery bring the traditional Nutcracker story to life in a contemporary urban setting. This evening-length show celebrates love, family and the magic of New Year's Eve.
The Knickerbocker Suite features New York City landmarks, such as The Statue of Liberty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and NY sports teams, weaved into the time-honored holiday tale of The Nutcracker. Classic Nutcracker scenes like "The Land of the Snow" are transformed into a snowy frenzy of shoppers dancing in and out of stores like Macy's and Bloomingdale's for last minute gifts.
A stripping, shimmy-filled fete celebrating Afro-Latin musicians their contributions to soul music.

Prepare for a night of flavor and fire. Afro. Latin. Soul.
