downtown dance
 n.— «For years the label “downtown dance” has been used as a vague shorthand to describe certain choreographers, usually experimental ones working on a shoestring budget. But most of the downtown choreographers (who generally loathe that label) have long since fled Manhattan for affordable housing and rehearsal space in Brooklyn or one of New York City’s other boroughs.» —“‘Crosstown Dance’: Choreographers Balance Inspiration and a Long Commute” by Claudia La Rocco New York Times Dec. 28, 2006.
