Seasonal Special Happenings

Step Up and Step Out

When: Sat., Nov. 8 2014

A “community dance experience” hosted by the Cleveland Public Library and LAND studio, Step Out Cleveland promises to bring “two days of thoughtful, free and fun dance programming to town.” The event, which takes place today and tomorrow at the Global Center for Health Innovation, features interactive workshops led by local and international dancers and performers. Electronic music producer FreQ Nasty will be on hand as will b-girl Ana Rokafella Garcia and writer and motivational speaker Ragen Chastain. Sokeo Ros, the founder of the youth performance group Case Closed!, is slated to lead a workshop as is international arts advocate Leah Nelson. And finally, the aptly named the Fungineers, a freestyling, beatboxing band of breakdancing puppets, will perform as well. A slew of Cleveland dancers and DJs are also slated to participate. Dance workshops take place today from 2 to 7 p.m. with a dance party following the festivities from 8 to midnight. Tomorrow’s workshops take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free but sign up on the Cleveland Public Library website at cpl.org or call the library's outreach and programming department at 216-623-2921.
