Almanac Dance Circus Theatre – Fit Fest
May 27 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Almanac Dance Circus Theatre invites you to join us for FIT FEST: our free, participatory, multidisciplinary outdoor arts and fitness festival for all ages and abilities. Fit Fest celebrates our collective human freedom to move, brings movement communities together, and celebrates public spaces as gathering places for creation. Now in its third year, the event will feature workshops and performances from local and international artists, a flashmob that everyone can join, an under-16 all styles dance battle, and much more.
Highlights of this year’s performances will include the cutting-edge, site specific contemporary circus of France-based Keep Company, Native Nations Dance Theatre, Hip-Hop Fundamentals, and an ensemble of dancers lead by choreographer Megan Mazarick. Throughout the day, everyone can learn the steps to a Flashmob dance, which will be performed all together just before the end of the festival. Try out circus skills including partner acrobatics, handstands, aerials, and juggling from Almanac company members and Acro, while younger movers can compete for custom graffiti trophies in an under-16 Dance Battle hosted by Hip Hop Fundamentals. Those looking for less exertion can participate in somatic walking tours lead by fidget’s Megan Bridge and Rhonda Moore, or take part in a gentle stretch class. Almanac will close out the evening with excerpts from Communitas, which was originally created in the park and will be touring to Jacob’s Pillow this summer.
