Movement at the Museum

 

Get moving in new and interesting ways within the walls of the museum.

On the final Friday of each month, get moving with fun, fresh, and healthy social activities the whole community can enjoy. Discover new interests, learn different skills, and connect with others all under our roof. Whether an up-tempo night of salsa dancing, a centering evening of tai chi, or all the aerobics involved with swing dance, you’re sure to leave inspired (and possibly perspired).

No prior experience needed.
5pm to 6pm on the final Friday of each month.

Friday, March 22, 5-6pm – Rumba

This Latin dance first arrived in the US in the 1920s.  The slow speed of the Rumba makes it easy for newcomers to pick up quickly, so no experience is necessary.  John Blanchette and Kayla Larrivee will be here to teach you this partner dance with Cuban hip movements and long smoldering looks.  Free for all and made possible by:
