The beautiful Bryant Park is only missing one thing: free dance. This Inception to Exhibition festival fills that need with Jennifer Muller/The Works, Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company and Manuel Vignoulle Dance, all performing for free on the Bryant Park Stage.
Every summer, everyone realizes that New York is exactly what Walt Whitman said it is: a “city of orgies, walks and joys.” No doubt Walt was thinking—just like us!—of the way that includes tons of great events you can't miss in NYC this summer; it’s the great secret of all who live here that everything is even more delightful under the urban sky at events like Lincoln Center Out of Doors. Even better, there’s a good chance that if you’re a dancer, a dance-lover or simply dance-curious (check out our great list of dance events this summer for more ideas), you’ll find a way to indulge yourself, for free, under the stars. So if you crave some plein air modern dance or have a midsummer yen for al fresco tap, check out this list and head outside.
