Busy day today... with the Dance Parade and DanceFest and the Ukrainian Festival... and there's the Dancing in the Street La MaMa Block Party on Fourth Street between Second Avenue and the Bowery from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. ...

Join La MaMa as we celebrate our 55th Anniversary with a Dancing in the Street Block Party with free performances and workshops, a bouncy castle, hula hoops, cotton candy, food carts, local restaurants, community organizations, children's activities, sidewalk chalking, DJ Todd Jones and dancing in the street.

Now in its 12th season, La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival is taking place in all La MaMa venues. This wide range of dance programming supports La MaMa’s commitment to presenting diverse performance styles that challenge audience’s perception of dance and reflects La MaMa’s longstanding mission to present performance that transcends politics and unifies cultures.

In support, of The 4th St. Food Co-op, the only one left in Manhattan, a portion of the sales of books & tarot card readings will go to The 4th St. Food Co-op. . . . The 4th Street Food Co-op, which was originally a buying club, has existed on 4th Street between Bowery and 2nd Avenue since the early 1970’s, however officially became a cooperative in 1995. The Co-op has no owner or paid employees, it is entirely run by volunteers and occupies a Mutual Housing Association (MHA) building. Despite the challenges of remaining afloat without a for-profit business model, the 4th Street Food Co-op has managed to remain open to the public and continues to provide access to non-GMO, organic, and ethically sourced foods and household products.
