  • From July 21st-26th, Battery Dance Company teaching artists Carmen Nicole and Mira Cook lead Dancing to Connect workshops in Staten Island for teens. This free program was in partnership with the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy and was held outside at beautiful Fort Wadsworth. Youth, ages 14-18, created their own choreography during the week and presented their original creations in a final performance on Saturday July 26. The Dancing to Connect workshops examined the relationship of the students to their surrounding environment and waterways. This was an opportunity for teens to collectively create choreography, be immersed in the natural beauty of Fort Wadsworth, camp, and to perform on an outdoor stage for family and friends.
