Infusing the essence of iconic dance works by master choreographers of the 20th century, Dances for a Variable Population (DVP) will lead a performance and workshop of Revival 8: Then and Now, Saturday, June 15 at 5:00PM at Grant’s Tomb in Manhattan.

 REVIVAL 8: Then and Now is a unique series set to unite legendary pieces from renowned choreographers, creatively inspired by esteemed ex-dancers who once graced their companies. These former dancers, with a deep connection to the original works, will reinterpret iconic works such as Martha Graham’s Steps in the Street, Tina Ramirez’s Carmen, Jerome Robbins’s Dances at a Gathering, and Paul Taylor’s Esplanade, tailored for the older adult population.

Celebrating its 15th year of free performances, DVP will also present a free All Together Dance workshop open to members of the public on  Saturday, June 15 at 5:00PM at Grant’s Tomb in Manhattan (followed by a 6:00PM performance). These interactive workshops highlight movements by guest artists and feature exercises from DVP’s MOVEMENT SPEAKS® curriculum. Reservations are recommended. For more info, visit www.dvpnyc.org.

Liberty Timeless Torches), Sandra Rivera (founding member of Ballet Hispanico), Marnie Thomas Wood (Martha Graham Company), and Alfred Gallman (Pepsi Bethel, Talley Beatty, and Alvin Ailey), along with DVP artistic director Naomi Goldberg Haas.
