The Battery Dance Festival provides a unique opportunity for both established and emerging dance companies to present original works of high artistic merit in a free public forum. BDF revels in the panoply of dance that our city offers, with strong emphasis on the inclusion of diverse dance styles and an international roster of performers. American choreographers such as Michelle Dorrance, Robert Battle, Jacqulyn Buglisi, and Elisa Monte have all presented their works alongside pre-eminent companies from Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, and the Caribbean.
This year's featured artists include the best of New York City as well as dancers from Botswana, Canada, Gabon, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Spain, Turkey, and a collection of India's greatest Kathak dancers.
