The spring dance season is in full swing and New York’s dance scene has a lot to offer this week. If you’re looking to get first-hand company experience, be sure to register for Sidra Bell’s upcoming workshop as part of the Sessions at Peridance. MADBOOTS Dance will be making its debut at the Joyce, and if you’re looking for something a little more intimate, swing by the Penthouse Studio for Ballet Hispánico’s Flamenco Tablao series. We hope this first half of the year has been a phenomenal one!

Ballet Hispánico is thrilled to present their Flamenco Tablao series June 23 at the company’s Penthouse Studio. Join celebrated dancer Nélida Tirado in reviving the ambiance of New York City’s flamenco nightclub scene. Two sets will be performed at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (Tickets: $25–55)

The Joyce Theater welcomes MADBOOTS Dance to their stage for the first time June 19–23. The company will perform both a New York and World Premiere.
