While Imagine Project does not at this time offer specific dance classes, all our workshops, improvs and performances prominently feature dance and movement. Second only to music itself we believe dance and expressive movement to be integral to the child’s development as a performer and artist. More often than not the children themselves have been creating the choreography for their own dances. To help nurture and structure these original movements, we have been gifted by the presence of two of the country’s foremost dancers and choreographers. Hope Boykin volunteered her time in May and June 2014, while rehearsing and presenting the Alvin Ailey Dance Company Lincoln Center performances, to direct and nurture the children from Tilden Hall Homeless Shelter in Brooklyn as they prepared for their June 17th performance at Radio City Music Hall.
Liz Vacco, in addition to doing the choreography for our Off Broadway production Imagine, Liz has staged original dance pieces for our Hartley House Holiday Shows and other Imagine Project presentations.
