Time Out says

City Center's super-affordable festival is a smorgasbord for dance lovers. Each evening features a sampling of international superstars and local favorites: 15 companies or teams of artists take part in five different programs, each performed just twice for only $20 a pop. This year's lineup includes Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Martha Graham Dance Company and San Francisco Ballet as well as the NYC debut of Kyiv City Ballet, Melissa Toogood and Herman Cornejo in a new piece by Pam Tanowitz, and Sara Mearns and Robbie Fairchild in the live premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s Joni Mitchell–themed The Two of Us.

Tickets get snapped up very fast, so get in the virtual waiting room before 11am on Sunday, August 28. The complete 2022 lineup is below; for more details about the shows and how to get seats, visit the festival's web page.
