This event is in collaboration with NYC Parks. Curated by Cassie Nordgren.

“Danza Highbridge”

Every September between 2003 and 2005 a loose alliance of dance companies, most of them based in Washington Heights, worked with DanceNYC to stage a one-day dance festival in the drained swimming pool at Highbridge Park. The event was called “Danza Washington Heights” and attracted hundreds of audience members, in part because of the unusual outdoor setting. Since the primary organizers were Columbia University graduate students the festival died when they graduated. UPCA revived the program, and borrowed the name Danza in September 2016, by working with local choreographers and companies to stage a one-day festival in the pool.

“Danza Highbridge”

Cada septiembre entre 2003 y 2005, una alianza informal de compañías de danza, la mayoría de ellas ubicadas en Washington Heights, trabajaron con DanceNYC para organizar un festival de danza de un día en la piscina del parque Highbridge. El evento se llamó "Danza Washington Heights" y capturó la atención de cientos de miembros de la audiencia, en parte debido a la inusual configuración al aire libre. Sin, embargo, como los organizadores primarios eran estudiantes graduados de la Universidad de Columbia, el festival murió cuando estos se graduaron. UPCA revivió el programa y tomó prestado el nombre Danza en septiembre de 2016, trabajando con coreógrafos y compañias locales para organizar un festival de un día en la piscina.
