The Joyce Theater's spring/summer season is highlighted by new arrivals and the return of old favorites, some of which have become an annual tradition. The Chelsea performance space welcomes a globe-spanning selection of dance companies including Ballet Hispanico, DanceBrazil and the Polish National Ballet. The celebrated DanceBrazil, a troupe that incorporates contemporary, capoeira and Afro-Brazilian styles, returns in June, while the Polish National Ballet makes its US debut with a performance of Igor Stravinsky's ballet score The Rite of Spring. Other highlights of the season include Ballet Hispanico (April 15–27) and the return of both Ailey II (March 17–22) and the Royal Ballet (June 23–28).
