The Southampton Cultural Center offers a variety of dance programs and workshops.

Project PAUSE

Project PAUSE is a community collaboration to spread PAUSE through the creation of a dance inspired by the moments of stillness that we all inherently crave. The goal of the project is to have community members fill out cards that share when, where, or why they indulge in a PAUSE. The community’s reflections will be used to generate choreography for a new work that will premiere at the Southampton Cultural Center.

This project is made possible by choreographer and NYSCA grant recipient Kendra Mace Clark.  For more information, please visit the Project PAUSE website.
