Dance events in NYC this week
In this joyful annual powwow, members of Thunderbird American Indian Dancers, founded in 1963, perform traditional songs and dances and tell stories inspired by Native American cultures across the continent. There will be dancing, signing, and Ameircan Indian craft and food stands everyday, plus sunset bonfires on Friday and Saturday.
Lincoln Center's free outdoor festival is one of the best things that New York does in the summer, so don't miss your chance to see major dance and music artists at spaces throughout the complex.
