If you’re not already a fan of West African dance, you will be after this exciting event! Local dance company VashtiDance Theater will be bringing their moves to Solar One next Friday, performing two dance works, giving a short family-friendly workshop, and then letting loose during an open dance party. If you’ve been to a dance party at Solar One before, you know just how much fun they can be. This one may very well be the best one yet! Admission is $10 for adults, $15 including 1 free drink, kids free. And this event is rain or shine, because it will be happening under a big, big tent- not to be missed!
