Celebrating #10YearsofMM, Metamovements Latin Dance Company in collaboration with Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF)'s Blackstone Community Center presents the 10th summer season of Salsa In The Park (SITP)!
This Monday, 8/14/17, a couple of days after National Youth Day, we will be celebrating all of the work that our MetaYouth Arts Ambassadors have accomplished with us this summer! Join us for their last official Salsa In The Park in Boston's South End (and join them for a special Cambridge Salsa In The Park produced by them on Wednesday August 16th — details to come)…
In celebration of our Youth Night at Salsa In The Park we welcome performances by MetaYouth (who will showcase the dance lines they have taught at Boston and Cambridge kids camps) as well as Hyde Square Task Force's Ritmo En Accion Youth program. Spinning the best in Salsa and Bachata will be the one and only DJ Hernan Choque.
Join us for a fun, free and family friendly outdoor dancing experience to promote health and wellness! Salsa On1 lessons for ALL abilities (including those who are deaf/hard of hearing and/or blind), performances, health information, music corner, social dancing and more! This year again we are proud to have Kerry Thompson, a DeafBlind dancer herself, of Silent Rhythms Boston teaching Salsa in American Sign Language (ASL) to those who are deaf/hard of Hearing and/or blind!
