Chanel, Lincoln Center Announces 2023 BAAND Together Dance Festival – WWD

The BAAND Together Dance Festival returns to Lincoln Center for its third summer.

The five-day outdoor festival, made possible by Chanel, will feature performances by many of New York’s top dance companies, including Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet and Harlem Dance Theatre. All performances are free and open to the public as part of Lincoln Center’s „Summer for the City” program.

The BAAND Together Dance Festival will include the world premiere of the new duet „Pas de O’Farrell” choreographed by Pedro Rui and performed by dancers from Ballet Hispanico and New York City Ballet. Also on the week’s lineup are „Other Dances” by Jerome Robbins and „Dancing Spirit,” by Ronald K. Brown paid tribute to former Alvin Ailey art director Judith Jamison. Choreography by Justin Beck, Robert Garland and Annabel Lopez Ochoa will also be on display throughout the week. An all-ages educational workshop, run by participating dance companies, takes place each afternoon prior to the performances.

In a joint statement, the artistic directors of the five dance companies described the festival as „a testament to the vibrancy and diversity of the New York City dance community.” We are delighted to return with an exciting program featuring some of the city’s most internationally respected repertory companies. This year’s show highlights the innovative visions that have made New York City the dance capital of our nation.

The channel sponsored the inaugural edition of the BAAND Together dance festival in summer 2021 and last year’s festival. A longtime supporter of the performing arts, Chanel continues to honor founder Gabrielle Chanel’s commitment to dance through global partnerships. The fashion house is the official partner of the Nijinsky Awards in Monaco, the opening gala of the Opéra de Paris and the patron of the Paris Opera Ballet. In February 2022, Chanel presented the design for the Paris Opera Ballet’s tribute to the late dancer and artistic director Patrick Dupont.
