PLEASE SAVE THE DATE: June 18, 2011, 7:00 pm, for the GESTURES Dance Ensemble’s end of year concert, which will be presented this year as part of the Theater at Riverside Church ’s New York Family Arts Festival. This is a FREE event open to the general public in the 250 seat theater.
The annual New York Family Arts Festival (June 11 – 26) brings together hundreds of families to witness and interact with dozens of artists from a diverse range of cultures. Launched in 1999 to address an acute need for family oriented, multicultural, and affordable summer arts programming in our neighborhood, the Festival takes place during the month of June each summer. The Festival includes arts from all disciplines-dance, music, drama, and visual arts-and celebrates the traditions of the many cultures of New York City . The three main components are an outdoor opening day street fair including arts & crafts, performers, and vendors on Broadway; an afternoon tribute to family-focused organizations with performances and an awards ceremony; and day long cultural villages featuring performances, artisans, food, and workshops for an up-close and hands on hands on approach to bridging diverse cultures.
*PLEASE NOTE: ALL REQUESTS FOR TICKETS OR RESERVATIONS FOR THE GESTURES PERFORMANCE ARE HANDLED BY RIVERSIDE CHURCH THEATER. Harbor Conservatory has nothing to do with tickets, we are not producing the performance as in previous years.
