History of site and related water issues

In the interest of connecting with our local watershed, we selected the Hudson River and more specifically Chelsea Piers as the location for honoring water. The Hudson River has a long history of water conservation. By dancing the joyful, light, water-themed dances of Isadora Duncan we hope to celebrate and inspire further conservation efforts.

The Music

This year we were joined by live musicians Ismail Butera and Natalia Perlaza.

The Performance

NYC GWDA suite of water-inspired dances choreographed by Isadora Duncan and passed on through her students.

Directions to site of the performance
