Fall for Dance
From tap to tango and hip-hop to ballet, the 14th annual Fall for Dance Festival brings the best of dance to City Center. Renowned companies from around the world perform alongside bold new artists.
This year’s festival features five world premiere commissions that you won’t want to miss.

Revered choreographer Mark Morris creates the solo Twelve of ‘em for American Ballet Theatre principal dancer David Hallberg, and Troy Schumacher debuts a work for Miami City Ballet. Hip-hop artists Honji Wang and Sébastien Ramirez present No. 1, created for Wang and New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns.
