Sword Dance Family Performance

When: Saturday, February 17, 3:30pm
Price: Free with Museum admission

Join us for this special performance as part of the 33rd annual New York Sword Dance Festival, which brings an ancient winter celebration to life with fast-paced rapper sword and mysterious long-sword dancing. The dancers are linked in a ring by swords as they weave ever more complex figures in this modern display of skill—a New York tradition adapted from English and European customs. 
 
Family programs are free with Museum admission and for Members, geared toward families with children ages 6-12 years old, and include a snack. Activities are designed for adults and children to complete together.
