Celebrating the culture and spirit of Red Hook through dance

When the people of Red Hook came to Coffey Park to see the kids dance They spoke with each other and told stories of what this day meant to them.

 

 

 

 

 

A place isn’t complete unless its filled with people. A park can be beautiful on its own. But when people gather in a park, it enhances its natural beauty.

A park is part of the city, yet it ignores the rules and order. It’s like the landscape picks up the energy of whatever is going on. Coffey Park is like its own little city that waits patiently and serenely for people to come give it breath.

The charisma and energy of the youth flowed effortlessly. There was never a moment of silence or boredom, but of constant anticipation for the next dance. And hardly even the rain could stop the momentum.

The energy didn’t just come from the dancers. The crowd lifted spirits, whooped and hollered with love, and had a blast. Its always been there. But on this day, everyone and everything felt fresh and new, like it was happening for the first time.

As the event came to an end, the movement of hip hop dance shifted to hugs, high fives and helping hands to clean up. Everyone took some of the energy from the day and brought it back to the streets and their homes. The park, pleased, continues to wait for the next celebration. It won’t be waiting long. Meanwhile, the kids are still dancing.
