Beach Sessions Dance Series is proud to return to Rockaway Beach, Queens for its third season of free beach-front outdoor performances with New York's most sought-after choreographers. For two Saturdays in August, choreographers are invited to re-imagine their work on an outdoor stage situated in the sand with the ocean as the backdrop. The series offers beachgoers and Rockaway locals a unique cultural experience at the City's popular summertime retreat.

Beach Sessions' mission is to support creativity in the Rockaways, facilitate public engagement with contemporary dance on the peninsula, and inspire sustained investment in the natural beauty of the Rockaway shoreline. Beach Sessions Dance Series is curated and organized by Sasha Okshteyn.
