The Waltz Community Project
Starting Sunday, November 14
Every Sunday at 4:30pm at the New Paltz Community Center -
The project is to unite in action the sound and movement, bringing together local musicians of all ages, dancers of all ages, parents, grandparents, students, teachers, and any residents willing to participate and contribute a bit of their energy and attention. This project is to make the holiday in the community, summoning creative energies and spirit to rise over darkness, divide and isolation.
This project is to bridge the gap between production and consumption, between sound and actions, as it is inextricably linked and form their union and cause in the Big Bang.
