Dances for a Variable Population will give four free concerts, “Washington Square Dances,” June 22 to 25 as part of the celebration of the newly renovated Washington Square Park in New York City.
All shows will begin at 6:30pm on the stage at the eastern end of the park, with performance preview at 6pm with dancers in three locations in the park: at the Arch, on the Holley Plaza, and in the pathways. All performances are free and no reservations are necessary.
Dances for a Variable Population (DVP), under the artistic direction of choreographer Naomi Goldberg Haas, includes women ages 24 to 81 and unites senior citizens with young professional dancers in works of rich colloquial movements, blending with a contemporary style that erases the traditional boundaries between dancers and non-dancers.
DVP also works with children and persons with disabilities and has been critically and popularly received in venues such as The Public Theater, Dance Theater Workshop, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, outdoor festivals, and non-traditional venues such as the Whitehall Terminal for the State Island Ferry.
