Transient slips are available at the Pines Marina (for reservations call 631-597-9581); ferry service is also available.

This year’s 20th anniversary edition of the Fire Island Dance Festival, which runs July 18 through 20, will present FI Danceaworld-class dance companies and solo artists giving diverse and energetic performances which include Broadway numbers, ballet, Afropop-infused movement, and hula dancing — all boasting the scenic Great South Bay as the background.

The opening performance begins on Saturday, July 19 at 5:00 pm, followed by a sunset performance at 7:00 pm.  Sunday’s closing performance starts at 5:00 pm. Performers scheduled to appear include Ailey II, BalletCollective, Kristine Bendul, Waldemar Quiñones-Villanueva, Ryan Worsing, Marcelo Gomes, Nick Kenkel, Sara Mearns, and Nā Lei Hulu I Ka Wēkiu.
