Do you know about any venue? I’m not able to find any :roll:

The ABT and the NYCB are touring and I haven’t found any other classical or neoclassical Company performing on that dates in NY –Alvin Ayley, D.T. of Harlem, New York Theatre Ballet,...) I have also looked at many theatres usually programming dance and no way, is it possible? can it be possible that during a whole week there is no dance performance in NY? :cry:

Any help or suggestion would be very much welcome.

Greetings

My earlier reply seems to have utterly disappeared (I saw it posted...), but unfortunately, I think you are hitting one of the traditional off points of the spring. Not only is Easter so early that people may be off skiing or the schoolbreak be a bit later, but also union contracts probably allow for a day or two off (or major overtime), so large companies would probably opt not to perform over the holiday.

NYCB and ABT don't perform in NYC in March, Dance Theater of Harlem no longer exists, NYTB's season is nearly or just over. You're just missing classical/contemporary dance at City Center and the Joyce, and City Center is dark for the week in prep for Encores!. Nor is there any dance at McCarter Theater or NJPAC, the two main easily accessible theatres in NJ.

There is some contemporary dance at Dance Theatre Workshop (Adrienne Truscott), Laguardia High School for the Performing Arts and Joyce SoHo, and African dance at the Joyce.

Thank you ksneds, I didn’t know but it is similar to what happens in Spain. Of course to be able to take a whole week off to visit NY with friends we have to take profit of such holidays for all of us to have no problems with our work :roll:

But also thanks so much Salzberg!!

By means of the first link I’ve found:

A SPECIAL EVENT


ONE NIGHT ONLY
LaGuardia Performing Arts High School.
100 Amsterdam Ave. (at 65th St.)
Tickets: General Admission $25 Students $10

Jody Oberfelder Dance Projects in collaboration The Orchestra of St. Luke's presents DIDO AND AENEAS featuring the LaGuardia Performing Arts High School Senior Chorus The Orchestra of St. Lukes with featured vocal soloists

DIDO AND AENEAS was created during a residency provided by the Joyce Theater Foundation, New York City, with major support from The Andrew Mellon Foundation. Commissioned by the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, this work is made possible with additional support from the New York Department of Department of Cultural Affairs, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the generosity of individual donors.
................................................................................

Is there anybody who knows a bit more about the company or even the show and that can let me know?

The other two links I had already visited and there is nothing working for us.

I really thank you very much for your help and please, excuse-me :oops: , but is there one or two Musicals that you can recommend me? there are so many looking great :) :roll:
