JAM Session & Concert - Mexican Folk Dance
Dance to the beat, play an instrument, and experience something unexpected with JAM Sessions, fun, interactive music and dance events hosted in conjunction with the Ford Theatre Foundation. The evening integrates live dance instruction from professional instructors with live band performances.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring a chair if you just plan on listening to the music. JAM Sessions are participatory and centered around movement and music. All JAMs are FREE, and all ages and skill levels are welcome.
This month's theme is Mexican Folk Dance.
Delight in the vibrant music and dance of Veracruz! Step up on the tarima (wooden dance platform) with Ballet Folklorico Ollin who will walk you through this rhythmic dance style. The JAM will end with a fandango celebrating the entire community. Live music from Mariachi Tesoro de San Fernando, an award-winning youth mariachi ensemble from San Fernando who won the National Arts and Humanities Youth Award from the White House in 2012.
