Today, Young Dancemakers Company, a dance ensemble comprised of New York City public high school students who create and perform their own choreographed work at free concerts throughout the city, will perform at the Arch at 6 p.m.
Selected by audition, the teenage members of Young Dancemakers each year present their own works and one by a well-known choreographer: in this case an excerpt from José Limón’s “Psalm.” Even audience members get in on the act: directed by Alice Teirstein, every show ends with “Dance With Us,” an opportunity to go onstage and improvise with the company.
Friday, July 22nd at 6 p.m. (rain date, Saturday), Washington Square Park, the Arch.
It’s unlikely it will rain as the forecast is sunny and expected to reach 100° in the city today.
They may want to improvise and leap from the Arch right into the fountain!
