Perfect Dancer

See Hell's Kitchen Dance with Mikhail Baryshnikov, June 22-24. Baryshnikov is the most celebrated artist in the dance world. His extraordinary, enduring talent prompted Time magazine to proclaim him "the greatest living dancer." Rising to stardom in classical ballet, Baryshnikov has pursued his passion for dancing for over 40 years in a range of dance disciplines.

The Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) is located in the performing arts complex, 37 ARTS, at 450 West 37th Street, New York. BAC is an international center for artistic experimentation and collaboration, providing unique opportunities for the professional development of emerging and mid-career artists from around the world and across disciplines. BAC serves as a creative laboratory, meeting place and performing space for a vibrant community of experimental artists from dance, music, theater, film, design and visual arts. Located in the heart of Hell's Kitchen, the Center also offers arts organizations much needed, state-of-the-art studio and office space, while acting as a cultural catalyst in a newly developing New York neighborhood.
