Celebrating collaborations and partnerships Tuesday morning, Boro President Mark Levine, Council Member Erik Bottcher and Greenwich House CEO Darren Bloch, Parks and Washington Square Park Conservancy personnel joined Naomi Goldberg-Haas and her Movement Speaks ™ class at Garibaldi Plaza in the park. 

Her class attracts a large loyal and engaged following every Tuesday at 9:30 am who dance and creatively move to an inspiring playlist after a series of warm up exercises. 

Other Greenwich House free scheduled classes are Tai Chi on Fridays, 12-1 pm at Holley Plaza (west of the fountain), and painting from 1-2 pm at Holley Plaza.  Greenwich House hopes to expand its programming in the park, particularly as weather warms up.
