"Bronx parks will play stage this August when Dancing In the Streets launches a series of site-specific performances called Dancing Through the Bronx.
The 30-year-old organization specializes in innovative public performances, which it will bring to three Bronx parks over the course of several days.
“Free, adventurous performances in unexpected places,” is how director Aviva Davidson describes the site-specific dances created to incorporate the environment.
Previously a city-wide program, Dancing in the Streets relocated to the south Bronx in 2011 and shifted its focus to promoting natural, architectural, and cultural treasures of the Bronx through dance, said Davidson.
Dancing in the Streets in committed to putting down roots in the Bronx, said Davidson, and they have been building relationships with other local organizations. In the case of the Dancing Through the Bronx series, the locations were chosen based on the involvement of organizations who wanted help bringing attention to certain areas.
One performance will be at Wave Hill in Riverdale; the second at Hayden Lord Park in Morris Heights, presented with Bronx Pro Real Estate Management; and the third at Owen Dolen Park in Westchester Square, presented by Bronx Academy of Arts & Dance and Westchester Square BID."
