Ballet Festival: UNITE
August 13-15, 2024
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 and programs by Royal and his community of world-renowned artists and influential choreographic voices.
“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.”
