We created Dance for $20.08 as a celebration of the diversity of dance we present throughout our two week Festival, Woetzel said. We also wanted to present an evening at a special ticket price-point, expanding our audience and encouraging both dance lovers, as well as first-time festival-goers, to come out for an incredible evening of dance. The intimacy and uniqueness of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater promises to make this evening a completely special experience for all in attendance, Woetzel said. You could pay several times as much for a seat in the rafters of a huge theatre in New York to see a lineup like this, Woetzel said of the $20.08 reserved seating. Instead, here youll be, only a few yards from the stage, seeing some of the finest dancers in the world perform right before your eyes. Or, for less than the price of a movie ticket, you can spread out a picnic blanket and enjoy the performance from the beautiful outdoor perspective of the amphitheater lawn.The evening features a mixed bill of cutting edge contemporary, flamenco and internationally-renowned classical dance. Keigwin + Company will present their athletic dance, which has been described as a combination of a sure comedic touch with a discernibly beating heart by The New York Times. The enchanting, feverishly sexy flamenco of Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca will keep the heat turned up, while Ashley Bouder and Daniel Ulbricht from New York City Ballet will round out the bill with their unparalleled classical dance.
