Fire Island Dance Festival

FIDF 2018 PosterJuly 20-22
Fire Island Pines, NY

A weekend of world-class dance, breathtaking views and unparalleled culture awaits you at Fire Island Dance Festival. Immerse yourself in dance with a diverse lineup of companies and choreographers, performing on a stunning waterfront stage in the Fire Island Pines.

Due to threatening weather conditions, the Leadership Sunset performance, originally scheduled for 7 pm Saturday, will now be at 2 pm Saturday. The performance originally scheduled for 5 pm Saturday will now start at 4 pm Saturday. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each show. Following each performance, complimentary cocktails will be offered on the Albert Lepage Pavilion at Whyte Hall. Ticket holders for Saturday are being contacted by email. The 5 pm Sunday performance has not changed.

In its 23 editions, Fire Island Dance Festival has raised more than $5.5 million to help ensure that those in need throughout the New York City area and in all 50 states receive lifesaving medications, nutritious meals, counseling and emergency financial assistance.

Stage and screen favorite Nathan Lee Graham hosts this year’s festival. Graham appeared on Broadway in Priscilla Queen of the Desert and The Wild Party and, most recently, in the acclaimed Off-Broadway hit The View UpStairs. He’s well-known as Todd from both Zoolander movies with Will Ferrell and Ben Stiller. And he earned a Best Classical Album Grammy Award for Songs of Innocence and of Experience as a soloist.

This year’s lineup includes works by choreographers Gemma Bond, James Kinney, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Jamar Roberts and Christopher Wheeldon, a duet with Tony Award nominee Robert Fairchild and two-time Emmy Award winner Travis Wall, and performances by Caleb Teicher & Company, Camille A. Brown & Dancers, Cirio Collective and Paul Taylor Dance Company. Learn more about the lineup.
