Time Out says

The 38th edition of this annual celebration—formerly known as the Downtown Dance Festival—welcomes artists from across the United States as well as India, Spain, Canada, Gabon, Botswana, Macedonia, Kazakhstan and Turkey. The splashy final event at Pace University costs $10 and requires reservations, but all other performances are free and take place outdoors at Robert F. Wagner Park, in front of the sparkling New York Harbor.
