    5 Soldiers: The Body is the Frontline

    The Rosie Kay Dance Company presents 5 Soldiers: The Body is the Frontline on January 13, 6:30pm, 8pm, 9:30pm, and January 14, 5:30pm, 7:30pm, 9:30pm. A Q&A session follows the performance.

    5 Soldiers is a moving, dramatic and unique work that looks at how the human body remains essential to war, even in the 21st century. A visceral “tour de force” of the senses, 5 Soldiers provides an intimate view of the training that prepares soldiers for the sheer physicality of combat, for the possibility of injury, and the impact conflict has on the bodies and minds of everyone it reaches. The piece has a powerful physicality, moments of humor, and is full of honesty, all inspired by input from serving and former soldiers.

They have indoor erg classes and on-water rowing at three boathouses around 3 NYC boroughs. Learn more about a sport not everyone has the tenacity to try.
