Company members of The Isadora Duncan Dance Company will lead these free public classes underwritten by the Fort Tryon Park Trust. Consistent participants will be invited to perform as part of the dance performance on August 22nd.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

When Stefan grows up, he turns on Maleficent, causing her to vengefully kidnap his first child, Sleeping Beauty. Rated PG.

Marika Hughes & Bottom Heavy grab tradition by its head, reshaping the landscape of genre and sound.

Marika fronts the band with such ease and so naturally, it makes one wonder why cellos haven’t always fronted bands. Her stylings are reminiscent of her classical upbringing yet defying expectation as she moves us with her supple vocals through jazz, funk, rock, and back again, surprising us along the way.

Rooted in groove—with Kyle Sanna on guitar, Fred Cash on bass, Charlie Burnham on violin, and Tony Mason on drums—Bottom Heavy instantly establishes itself as a strong new sound; flowing freely between funky instrumentals, dreamy lullaby, free improv, and killer songs. As you are charmed by her cello, her voice, and her band, you will be charmed by Marika herself: fiercely authentic, her audience an old friend invited along for the fabulous ride.

Join NYC Parks for free, family-friendly movies in our city's parks!

In this contemporary version of Annie, the orphan (Quvenzhané Wallis) has a hard-knock life with her calculating foster mother Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz).

But, Annie's confidence and sunny outlook could save Will instead. Rated PG.
