“Washington Square Dances” performed by dance group, Dances for a Variable Population, and directed by Naomi Goldberg Haas, premieres at Washington Square Park this week with four performances. The piece aims to celebrate the arrival of summer in NYC.
The show debuted last night, Wednesday, June 22nd. The next three performances will take place from Thursday, June 23rd through Saturday, June 25th at 6:30 p.m. on the Garibaldi Stage (Eastern end of the Park).
A special bonus preview will occur at 6 p.m. each evening in three locations within the park – the Arch, Holley Plaza, and amidst the park pathways.
For Washington Square Dances, director Naomi Goldberg Haas looked to create a piece that “celebrates community, the joy of dance, and the arrival of summer in New York City.” Her performing group, Dances for a Variable Population, is comprised of women ages 24 to 81, and “aims to erase the border between dancer and non-dancer, returning dance to its initial wellspring: joy.”
