This guest post is from Gabrielle Schaffner, Executive Director of the Fort Point Arts Community in Boston.
Dance Spot is an interactive public art piece that transforms the sidewalks of Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood into colorful dance floors.
A series of five “dance spots”,prominently located throughout the Fort Point neighborhood, each area has a dance diagram drawn on the sidewalk with colorful chalks. Paired with a particular song, passers by can scan a QR code to hear the music, learn the dances via video, and see the dances performed by the artist.
Throughout Fort Point Open Studios weekend (October 19-21) and at other scheduled times throughout the project’s duration, Elisa will travel from dance spot to dance spot with a portable stereo playing each dance spot song while doing the dance spot routines and encouraging others to join in.
