Program Gets People of All Ages to Get Up and Dance at Heritage Park in North Minneapolis March 12

The Minnesota Historical Society is partnering with Kairos Alive! to bring their award-winning Intergenerational Dance Hall program to Heritage Park on March 12.

This program features live music by the Kevin Washington Quartet and includes participatory dancing, storytelling and an interactive presentation on preserving family stories with MNHS historians. The program is designed to bring people together from all ages and abilities to promote arts participation, health education and personal and community well-being.

Intergenerational Dance Hall is being held on March 12 from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Heritage Park Health and Wellness Center, 1015 4th Ave N. in Minneapolis. It is free.

Additional partners are Augustana Open Circle and the Dr. Solomon Carter Action Community Team on Alzheimer’s task force. MNHS is a member of the the St. Paul Neighborhood's Action Community Team on Alzheimer's.

Funding is made possible, in part, by the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2008.

MNHS is a non-profit educational and cultural institution established in 1849. MNHS collects, preserves and tells the story of Minnesota’s past through museum exhibits, libraries and collections, historic sites, educational programs and book publishing. Using the power of history to transform lives, MNHS preserves our past, shares our state’s stories and connects people with history.

The Minnesota Historical Society is supported in part by its Premier Partners: Xcel Energy and Explore Minnesota Tourism.
