The free annual BATTERY DANCE FESTIVAL, formerly known as the Downtown Dance Festival, takes place outdoors at Robert F. Wagner Park, in front of the sparkling New York Harbor. Last year, the festival went fully virtual, but for its 40th edition this year it is offering both in-person and streaming options: three nights of virtual performances from around the world, followed by six nights of live performances that will also be live-streamed on YouTube. - Time Out New York
