Beach Sessions Dance Series returns to Rockaway Beach, Queens 
for its fourth season of free beach-front performances on August 25 and 26.
Program:
AUNTS @ ROCKAWAY
Organized by AUNTS in collaboration with Beach Sessions


New York, NY - Beach Sessions Dance Series is proud to return to Rockaway Beach, Queens for its fourth season of free beach-front outdoor performances with a platform for dance called AUNTS, presenting varied works by New York's most exciting artists. This season's programming continues to support Beach Sessions' commitment to presenting public site-responsive performances in the Rockaways, and offering beachgoers and Rockaway locals a unique cultural experience at the City's popular summertime retreat.

For AUNTS @ Rockaway, a collection of over a dozen artists organized by AUNTS in collaboration with Beach Sessions will transform the neighborhood and take over three diverse locations  - the beach, the boardwalk, and Rockaway's architectural marvel, The Castle - for a two-day performance with multiple performers, open dance parties, multidisciplinary, body/non-body based, time orientated, finished/experimental/process art. Audiences will be able to join, follow, wander and experience as many as or as few performances as they choose, creating their own experiences through chance encounters.
