Join the Boston Public Library’s Connolly Branch in a Youthful Celebration of Brazilian Music and Dance: Cultural Entertainment for the Whole Family – Monday, May 3rd (6:30-8:00 p.m.)
The Connolly Branch of the Boston Public Library is holding a Spring Dance Celebration and Open House featuring entertainment by local area youth. This family event is sponsored by the Friends of the Connolly Branch Library and will showcase both American and Brazilian music and dance. Treat yourself and the kids to a real cultural experience compliments of La Pinata who will be performing native Brazilian dances to the music of a live samba band. There will also be a parade and refreshments following the performance.
These talented and enthusiastic performers come to us from the Latin American Cultural Family Network, a native arts learning center for Boston’s youth (grades K – 11). For 20 years now, students from all cultural backgrounds have come to the network to experience Latin American culture through participation in educational programs in music, dance, drama, story-telling, and visual arts. They ultimatley share their aquired appreciation for this culture with others through performances given both locally and as faraway as over-seas. Local appearences have included such venues as First Night, the Museum of Fine Arts, and Harvard University.
Here is a great opportunity for your kids to gain a bit of cultual appreciation themselves via the efforts of their own peers with whom they can so easily identify … And who knows, maybe they, themsevles, will come away from this event so inspired that they be just begging you to enroll them in some of these great progams that the Latin American Cultural Family Network has to offer.
