Event description: The 28th annual New York Sword Dance Festival brings an ancient winter celebration to life, with fast-paced "rapper" sword and mysterious long sword dancing. The dancers are linked in a ring by swords as they weave ever more complex figures in this modern display of skill—a New York tradition adapted from English and European customs. Recommended for ages 6 and up.

All programs are free with admission and a light snack will be served. Email egoldin@mcny.org for more information. Registration is required.
