The Downtown Dance Festival (DDF) is one of lower Manhattan’s most highly anticipated summer events.  Initiated in 1982 by Battery Dance Company (BDC), the Festival has thrilled audiences in the hundreds of thousands and showcased great dance companies from around the world as well as the best New York City has to offer, all free-of-charge to the public.  The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker and many foreign media outlets have accorded the DDF consistently excellent reviews and lavish features.  As Battery Dance Company’s signature downtown community program, DDF has featured over 200 dance companies ranging in style from classical ballet to post-modern, Indian classical to Afro-Cuban.  The Downtown Dance Festival is NYC’s longest-running dance festival.
