Dance and Music in Asia

Dance and Music in Asia

Family Days
(Jeff Fantich)

For our seventh Family Day, we have created a special celebration of movement and sound from our neighbors across the Pacific.

Interested in picking up a new dance move or song? Join interactive folk dance and contemporary vocal workshops given by our visiting artists. Need a new instrument for your collection? Stop by one of our fun and informative activities stations where you can make your very own percussion, string, and wind instruments.

The entire day is designed to stimulate your musical talent and feed your imagination as you learn more about music and dance from Asia and the Pacific.
