Seating Options

Havana Rakatan

“Rakatan is not a word in a real sense; it’s the rhythmical beat that the company dancers used during rehearsals to mark the tempo…ra-ka-tan, ra-ka-tan, ra-ka-tan.” As her company’s website suggests, choreographer Nilda Guerra’s Havana Rakatan works in a language more compelling than words: rhythm. Set to mambo, modern salsa, and Afro-Haitian music, the ensemble work has been touring the globe in between holding down six seasons on the London stage.

As the stage explodes with color, dancers present a supersaturated take on Havana nightlife. During a recent London run, The Stage called it “near perfect dance show,” populated by “nimble, flirtatious” dancers and live musicians who are “accomplished melodically and rhythmically, and with just the right amount of Caribbean insouciance.”

New York City Center

If New York City is the cultural capital of the world, then the historic New York City Center might be its artistic throne room. An arts hub since 1943, it serves as home base for Encores!, a Tony-recognized musical theater series, and the acclaimed Fall for Dance Festival. City Center also hosts world-renowned companies such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Manhattan Theatre Club. With its 2011 renovation and its ever-changing roster of artists, New York City Center might look a little different than it did 70 years ago—or even last week—but it retains a commitment to entertaining, arts education, and keeping its block of 55th Street from floating off into the air.
