The Westhampton Beach Project is the 5th annual free-to-the-public event that brings a combination of contemporary dance, music, and delicious eats from local Long Island restaurants. The two-day event will be hosted on the Great Lawn on Main Street in Westhampton Beach, NY on July 28th & 29th beginning at 8:00 PM.
The project will kick off on July 28th, where celebrated singer Chris Ruggiero will open the weekend. Chris Ruggiero gained national attention when he performed on one of PBS-TV’s broadcast specials. July 29th will feature The Parsons Dance Company, a contemporary American dance company internationally renowned for its energized athletic ensemble.
Throughout the two days guests will be able to sample bites from Insatiable Eats, Brunetti, Rogue Kitchens, The Wine Room at the Cottage, Sobol and much more. The Westhampton Beach Project was conceptualized by artist and President of the Musical Mime Theater, Steven Colucci, who has been working in the arts for over 45 years and worked closely with the famous Marcel Marceau.
A local Westhampton resident, Colucci has made it his personal mission to expose the younger generation to some of the art forms he has spent so many years of his life dedicated to studying.
In addition, guests interested in making a charitable donation of $60 and up will receive a VIP seat on the Great Lawn, hors d’oeuvres, specialty appetizers, and cocktails for the event. All proceeds will go towards The Musical Mime Company, INC, the not-for-profit organization dedicated to assembling artists in all areas of creativity and collecting information on corporal movement and furthermore on art in general.
