Best Harbor for International Dance (2013)

New York City Center

The original home of Balanchine's New York City Ballet, New York City Center—recently emerged from a stunning renovation—hosts troupes from around the world, including British dance genius Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty (October 23–November 3), the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (December 4–January 5), a flamenco festival (March 6–9), Les Ballets de Monte Carlo's LAC, a sequel to Swan Lake (March 14–16), and, next September, the 11th annual Fall for Dance Festival, a bargain intro to the whole scene. This dedication to the art form is what you get when you hire a former ballet dancer, Arlene Shuler, to run the place.
