About this Event

Groundswell Series is a curated site-specific pop-up dance performance that hosts dance events in outdoor spaces in New York City. This year's edition will take place in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Audience members are led from site to site where they witness each choreographer's work in a unique setting.

This event is free, but we suggest a $10 donation. Donations can be made in cash or via Venmo at @zoo-city. Please RSVP.

ACCESS NOTE: due to the site-specific nature of this event, we are unable to have complete control over the accessibility of these performances. This event will involve walking from one park or section of a park to another. Some of these travels involve stairs and inclines. That said, please contact us at groundswellseries@gmail.com if you require special assistance, and we will do our absolute best to accommodate your needs.
