Battery Dance, in association with Battery Park City Authority, announces the 37th Annual Battery Dance Festival with performances from August 12-17, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm against the breathtaking backdrop of the New York Harbor at Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park in Battery Park City, culminating in a closing event and reception on August 18, 2018, from 6pm to 8pm at The Schimmel Center at Pace University. Tickets for August 18 will be available beginning 8/1.

In addition to the live performances, there will be a screening of the film Moving Stories held in the Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 8pm. Moving Stories, which recently premiered at the MoMa Doc Fortnight Festival, follows Battery Dance's dancers as they travel to India, Romania, Korea, and Iraq working with at-risk youth through the Dancing to Connect program. With just one week to teach the tools of choreography and collaboration to the youth in preparation for a final performance, the film captures the struggle, frustration, determination, and transformation of both students and teachers. Moving Stories is a film by Sundance Award-winning director Rob Fruchtman, writer-producer Cornelia Ravenal, filmmaker Mikael Södersten, and producer Wendy Sax.

Established by Battery Dance in 1982 the Battery Dance Festival (BDF) is New York City's longest-running free public dance festival. Audiences are traditionally drawn from the large downtown working population and residents, families, tourists, senior citizens and dance fans from the greater NYC metropolitan area. Each year, the Festival attracts a combined audience of over 12,000 people.

The Battery Dance Festival provides a unique opportunity for both established and emerging dance companies to present original works of high artistic merit in a free public forum. BDF revels in the panoply of dance that our city offers, with strong emphasis on the inclusion of diverse dance styles and an international roster of performers. American choreographers such as Michelle Dorrance, Robert Battle, Jacqulyn Buglisi and Elisa Monte have all presented their works alongside pre-eminent companies from Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and the Caribbean.

"Having the opportunity to perform and teach around the world, it is only natural that we would bring back to our home in lower Manhattan the amazing treasures we discover overseas," said Jonathan Hollander, artistic director of Battery Dance. "With countries from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America this summer, we will celebrate and explore vibrant forms of dance in a setting that represents New York's history as a destination for immigrants."

This year's featured artists include the best of New York City as well as dancers from Botswana, Canada, Gabon, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Spain, Turkey and a collection of India's greatest Kathak dancers.

Historic Venue Closing Doors After 18 Years
Due to Escalating Rent


New York, NY - April 17, 2018 - After 18 years of hosting some of music and entertainment's most revered names, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill has announced its final run of shows in its current Times Square location (237 W 42nd St). Due to escalating rent, the historic venue and supper club is forced to close its doors with a final performance on April 29, 2018. B.B. King Blues Club is in the process of selecting a new location in Manhattan to relocate the venue.

To honor its storied legacy, B.B. King's will host a very special closing week celebration which will consist of performances by: Buddy Guy, Rick Ross, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh + Special Guests, El Gran Combo, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and more. Buddy Guy will headline the final B.B. King Blues Club show on Sunday, April 29. Please see below for the current schedule.

To purchase tickets - all announced shows are on sale now. Stay tuned for more shows to be announced in the next few days at

"It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share the news about B.B. King Blues Club's closing. Despite many sold out shows, the location's rent escalated to an unsustainable level, leaving us no choice but to close our doors. Unfortunately this has become a growing trend in New York City, with other iconic music venues and businesses falling victim to opportunistic property owners. This venue's legacy extends much further than the stage, playing a role in Times Square's revitalization two decades ago. It is a shame that wasn't taken into consideration regarding its future in the area. Nevertheless, we feel extremely grateful for the overwhelming support we have received from both fans and artists over the years to create some truly historic and incredible memories in this space. We hope that we can find a new place to call home very soon so we can continue bringing live music to you all," remarks Tsion Bensusan, Chief Operating Officer.

All shows scheduled beyond the April 29th closing date will be moved to various venues throughout the city. The weekly Sunday Gospel Brunch featuring The Harlem Gospel Choir, will give their two final performances at B.B. King's on April 22nd & 29th. BB King's is currently working with the group to find a new home for their weekly residency which will be announced shortly. Lucille's Grill, located inside the venue, will remain open until April 29th and will feature sets by club favorites: B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars, Jon Paris, A Decade of Soul, and more.

First opened on June 20, 2000, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill has hosted appearances by legends across all genres of music. Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Etta James, Alicia Keys, The Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Jay-Z, Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Al Green, Wilson Pickett, Bo Diddley, and B.B. King himself are just a few of the many memorable performers to have graced the club's stage. Recognized as must-see destination for live music, the venue offered fans unique experiences that could not be seen anywhere else including rare on-stage collaborations by: Larry Graham with Prince, B.B. King with John Mayer, Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus, Jerry Douglas with Paul Simon, Steep Canyon Rangers with Steve Martin, and many more.

B.B. King Blues Club & Grill Closing Week Celebration Show Schedule:

April 17 & 18 Buddy Guy
April 22 William Bell's Memphis Soul Revue
April 23 Rick Ross
April 25 Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh + Special Guests
April 26 El Gran Combo
April 28 George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic + Special Guests
April 29 Buddy Guy

Rick's Cabaret New York City

Rick’s Cabaret New York, the luxurious gentlemen’s club located in midtown Manhattan famous for its beautiful exotic dancers, deluxe VIP services, and warm hospitality, will be holding Halloween parties from Wednesday, October 25th through Tuesday, October 31st. There will be drink specials, Halloween fun and surprises, but the main attraction is the 100 Rick’s Cabaret girls who will be wearing (and stripping out of) sexy costumes.

“I am coming as a french maid,” purred Rick's Cabaret NYC girl Sandra. “I love wearing tiny, sexy outfits—and I really love taking them off!”

Rick’s Cabaret NYC girl Fiona is not sure what she will wear. “Halloween is such a fun time. I have so many ideas. I think one night I will be a cheerleader, but I also want to wear my nurse’s uniform.”

“We will be wearing sexy things--count on it,” purred Rick's Cabaret NYC girl Camille. “I promise—nothing but hot girls on all three floors, and on the VIP Roof Deck, too!”

Rick’s Cabaret was named #1 in New York by Playboy and is favored by business professionals, celebrities, and pro athletes. The Rick’s Cabaret Steakhouse on the club’s second floor is a popular spot for dinner and late-night dining.
