2015 WINDHOVER ANNOUNCES “QUARRY DANCE 4” at Little Parker Quarry
Off Rowe Avenue in Rockport, MA 01966
Performances are: FRIDAY, JULY 31st at 5:30PM
SATURDAY, AUGUST 1st at 11:00AM & 5:30PM
SUNDAY, AUGUST 2nd at 1:00PM
Windhover Performing Arts Center has presented unforgettable Quarry Dances for the past three years on Cape Ann. The New York City based dance company, Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre, returns again this summer for a residency at Windhover for one week in order to create and choreograph a site specific quarry dance for the public. The quarry dance performances continue to grow in popularity each year. (see attached flyer)
For Quarry Dance 4, the Dušan Týnek dancers will use the architecture of Little Parker Quarry — its ledges, cliffs, terraces and water — to celebrate this special place. The uniqueness and beauty of the quarry will be embraced and honored as in the previous quarry dances.
Performances are free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. No reservations are required. The performance will last just over one hour.

There is NO parking on Rowe Avenue or on Drumlin Road. Due to the lack of any available parking at Little Parker Quarry, please take note of these special instructions for parking and shuttle transportation:
Limited parking has been arranged at the Granite Pier on the upper level. Although fees are waived for parking, you must stop at the small parking kiosk and request a Quarry Dance parking pass from the attendant. Please display this parking pass in the front window. Due to the limited space for parking, car pooling is highly suggested.
There will be a six passenger van shuttle available at Granite Pier for $1.00 per person each way for those who do not want to walk. It is about a 15 minute uphill walk from Granite Pier to the Quarry on Rowe Avenue. The shuttle will begin 45 minutes prior to each performance and run continually until the performance starts. It will return guests back to Granite Pier following the performances. We are requesting that no private vehicles be driven on Rowe Avenue or on Drumlin Road going to the quarry during the shuttle and performance times in order to allow for an unimpeded flow of traffic.
Note: Seating will be on a first-come-first-served basis and chairs will be provided. In addition, people are welcome to bring blankets to sit on, as well bring their own water and soft drinks. Please do be advised that space is limited.
In case of rain, the performance is cancelled.
