December 1 and 8, 2012
Silent Rhythms has partnered with MetaMovements and Kerry Thompson (pictured above) to provide two ASL-interpreted workshops on Latin dancing. The workshops will be held December 1 and 8, 2012 at Blackstone Community Center, which is the building next to where Salsa in the Park Summer was held. After the workshops there will be a dance social so you can practice what you've learned or watch other folks dance.
The details are:
December 1st and 8th, 2012
11:00 am (check in / sign in)
11:30 am (dance lessons)
12:15 to 1:30 (dance social)
Blackstone Community Center (5th floor)
50 West Brookline Street
Boston, MA 02118 (between Washington Street and Shawmut Ave in South End)
(near Silver and Orange line MBTA stops)
Learn how to dance bachata, cha-cha, rueda, salsa, and merengue! All levels are welcome so don't worry if you have absolutely zero experience plus this is a great community event so you can bring the family too or your significant other that does not really want to dance but would like to watch.
Silent Rhythms is a program for the deaf and hard of hearing that makes learning how to dance fun, easy and accessible! Lessons are taught by Kerry Thompson who has been a Latin dancer for a number of years performing in New York City, Paris, Miami, Stamford, and Boston. At a young age, Kerry was diagnosed as profoundly deaf then diagnosed a few years later with Retinitis Pigmentosa.
