Friends of the High Line, Hudson Guild, and Youth Step USA are pleased to present Step to the High Line, a week-long festival of step performances on the High Line. Step is a form of creative expression that celebrates the power and energy of youth through synchronized stomping, clapping, calling, and other sounds.
The Step to the High Line festival will feature New York City public school students who turn the High Line into their stage, with a different step team performing at 6:30 PM daily between Monday, June 13, 2011 and Friday, June 17, 2011. The Step to the High Line festival will culminate in a showcase of all five teams, plus a special guest appearance by Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, beginning at 4:00 PM on Saturday, June 18, 2011. Step to the High Line performances will take place in Section 1 of the High Line, at the Chelsea Market Passage, located on the High Line at West 16th Street.
All performances are free and appropriate for all ages. For more information, visit www.thehighline.org.
