Thursday is the new date night at Garfield Park Nature Center. Make your night memorable by joining us for Dancing Under the Stars on Thursday nights in May from 6:30 - 8 p.m. Each program begins outside (weather permitting). Learn a new dance, led by a dance instructor, and then come inside to learn some basic astronomy during a cool down.
The Dancing Under the Stars series is the beginning of a new focus on health and wellness in Garfield Park Nature Center.
Naturalist LaDonna Sifford said, �We're trying to introduce people to fun, alternative ways of exercising. There are people who like to dance and people who are interested in astronomy. We want to get those people outside and having fun in Cleveland Metroparks.�
Join us for an out-of-this-world experience that will have you seeing stars at any of these programs, including:
Dancing Under the Stars: Latin Dance 101 � May 1
Get your heart beating to the rhythm of Latin music and tango under the constellation Taurus with Brittany Carbaugh. Then take a break to learn about the planets and the stars.
Dancing Under the Stars: Polka � May 8
Cleveland has a long standing relationship with Slovenian-style Polka Music. Join Cleveland's own Mike Wojtila and share your love of traditional Polka dancing or gain a new found appreciation.
Dancing Under the Stars: Outdoor Planetarium � May 29
It's too bright to stargaze, but you can dance under the stars and show off your new moves in the outdoor planetarium. Come salsa under Saturn with Brittany Carbaugh. This portable planetarium puts the night sky above your head no matter what time it is.
