‘Seniors Partnering With Artists City-wide’ SPARC

SPARC, Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide, is a collaboration among the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, The Department for the Aging, and the City’s Five Local Arts Councils. The program places artists to establish arts-based programming in senior centers across the five boroughs. During our residency, Henry Holmes and I taught embodiment and facilitated dance-making with our own troupe of older adult movers. Our guiding question: How do we tell the body’s story?
