Park Dances DOWN - The Battery Bosque 
In its 4th year Kinesis Project sets loose PARK DANCES, a physical and dynamic experience for all ages at 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM in the historic Battery Bosque Gardens. Dancers play in the fountains, along the waterway and amongst the flowers…all in view of the Statue of Liberty. 

Melissa Riker, the company’s artistic director says: “Dances are to be shared, and what better place for dancing and surprises than in the middle of gardens that were built with renewal and life in mind!"

Kinesis Project is an audience favorite and creator of the critically acclaimed “…captivating, comical and charming.” (CriticalDance.comPressing Empty at Judson Church in February 2010. The company again takes its dances out to the park. Weaving movement through knowing audience, unsuspecting visitors and transfixed passers-by. 
Park Dances includes Kinesis Project dancers Zoe Bowick, Hilary Brown, Madeline Hoak, Benjamin Oyzon, Jun Lee and Rebecca Patek. Choreography for this series is by Melissa Riker in constant collaboration with the dancers. 

This performance is part of Kinesis Project’s dance outreach programming series placing free dance in parks around New York City. In 2010 the series has grown to be an UPTOWN/DOWNTOWN event with performances on both ends of Manhattan Island. The Company has performed in Battery Park annually since 2006 and is proud to be pairing the first performance in Ft. Tryon Park with the park’s 75th Anniversary.
