"Perfectly timed - in the first weeks after Labor Day, when we are rested and starved for creative companionship … and perfectly located at Joe' Pub" (The Village Voice), Dancenow/NYC, will launch the third season of DanceOpolitan during the 11th season of its citywide Dancenow/NYC Festival. The year-round cosmopolitan urban dance series, in partnership with Joe's Pub at the Public Theater, opens with three uniquely different cabaret shows of what's now in dance, featuring 27 of today's hottest and most creative city-based choreographers and performers. From Latin to hip hop, toe to tap, bare feet to flamenco, each show includes gems from the festival's past, present and future, all faces you will surely want to keep an eye on. The hip and sexy new series where you can get a cocktail and hang out on the velvet couches while watching dance, is getting lots of sidewalk buzz and offers today's avid dance fan and newbie a new way to experience dance that is urban, accessible and irresistibly different.
Joe's Pub is The Public Theater's newest performance space. Named in honor of The Public Theater/NYSF's founder, Joseph Papp, the Pub features food, drink, and eclectic entertainment that spans a wide spectrum of cultural and performance styles.
