DANCES FOR SENIORS 2021

Part Performance and Part Interactive Workshops for Older Adults of all ages and abilities for Individual Expression and Community Empowerment at Seven NYC Senior Centers!

 

During the Fall 2021 season, Dances For A Variable Population (DVP) will bring DANCES FOR SENIORS, free, community-based performances with interactive creative movement for all ages and abilities. Presented by six members of DVP's multi-generational company and featuring highlights of dances performed in public performances at Washington Square Park, Grant’s Memorial Tomb, Yolanda Garcia Park and Queensbridge Park, these 75 min community events will feature dances from the styles of modern dance, jazz, flamenco, and hip-hop. The performances will be followed by a creative movement and dance experience highlighting moving together in fun and friendship. Adults of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate! 

The entire event is designed to be accessible to individuals of all abilities, bringing the power of dance in connecting communities. The performance presents dances from concert stages and social dance; the workshop invites the audience to dive into individual expression, social interaction and discover new possibilities inspired by our company dancers and seasoned guest artists.

 Through performance and a following interactive experience, New Yorkers become participants as well as audience members. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and shoes for moving!
