Ballet Festival

Tue Aug 13 - Sun Aug 18

The Joyce Theater's Ballet Festival returns this summer with UNITE for a one-week celebration of ballet in all its splendor. Creatively directed and curated by Calvin Royal III, Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre, this year's festival showcases performances by Royal and his community of world-renowned artists and influential choreographic voices from American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, Alonzo King LINES Ballet, and more. “As the Joyce represents ultimate artistry and dance legacy, it is important to me that the Festival evenings, taken together, honor the past; reflect the present; and reach toward the future of what our art form can be.” United in our collective humanity.
