Why?
  1. Give voice and agency to women who constantly deal with men who speak disrespectfully to them while traveling the streets of Harlem.
  2. Promote wellness through fitness and nutrition in the Harlem community.
  3. Foster networking and fellowship amongst women in Harlem through communal experience.
  4. Create an artwork, specifically a dance piece, by the Harlem community, for the Harlem community.

The overall impact of this initiative is empowerment and encouragement for women to take action, artistically or otherwise. The Window Sex Project: Community Workshops not only provides practical methods and resources for women to combat street harassment, but also empowers women to define and celebrate themselves through healthy choices and artistic expression.

Please note registration is limited to 25 women per session.

Please wear comfortable clothes you can move in.

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances (SLMDances) is a New York City-based contemporary dance company presenting works that involve audiences in the artistic process, provoke a visceral reaction to the physicality on stage, and incite conversation. Choreographer Sydnie L. Mosley's emerging artistic voice reflects real life experiences with a particular interest in black cultures and women. The movement vocabulary spans modern, ballet, and African dance, while dancers frequently use their voice with spoken text and audible breath. Through dimensional compositions, specific, textured movement, and character development, choreographed works appeal to a sense of humanity.  

Sydnie L. Mosley Dances has presented work at The Chen Dance Center newsteps program for emerging artists; the FIGMENT Festival on Governor’s Island; RoofTopDance, a new stage for emerging artists in Bushwick, Brooklyn; the Artists’ Salon at the Roger Smith Hotel; as a part of the New York Foundation for the Arts Boot Camp Arts Festival at Surreal Estate and Joyce SoHo; The Actor's Fund Arts Theater; the Harlem Arts Alliance Artz, Rootz & Rhythm Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX), The Red Carpet Theater at Taino Towers, Barnard College, The Pennsylvania State University, and Cornell University. The company situates itself amongst the Harlem arts community by creating and presenting dance uptown; partnering with other Harlem artists and businesses; and focusing community-based work within Harlem.
