Warming Up for a Fall Performance on the High Line

pipe Members of the Hudson Guild and Dances for a Variable Populations preparing for "Autumn Crossing," a dance performance coming up next month on the High Line. The group choreographs simple, spontaneous movements based on personal memories.
 

This summer, just a block away from the High Line, enthusiastic dancers of all skill levels have been getting to know each other through workshops at the Hudson Guild's Fulton Center.

Led by choreographer Naomi Golberg Haas, dancers are encouraged to reflect on personal memories (for example, the feeling of being in a mother's home) and express their recollection through simple, impromptu movements. The workshops build an understanding between participants through the realizing the joy of expressive movement.

"I loved the way that, from the very first class, we all felt like we already knew each other," said Harriet, one participant. "This is a time when people of different ages, backgrounds, and abilities are able to come together and appreciate each other."

We're looking forward to this September, when the workshop will join the professional dance group, Dances for a Variable Population, to present a final performance entitled "Autumn Crossing" on the High Line.

For updates on "Autumn Crossing," as well as a full calendar of free and low-cost public programs, check out our Events Calendar.

"Autumn Crossing" is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council; the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by the New York State Council on the Arts and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
