Looking for a fun, healthy & energetic way to start your day? Then join the group of students, staff, and faculty that will gather to dance in our museum’s cave that’s part of the Ancestors exhibit.

Grammy-award winner Jorge Drexler correctly states in his song "Bailar en la cueva": “We [humans] were already making music way before we knew agriculture.” Indeed, cave paintings suggest that our species was dancing as far back as 70,000 years ago.

Moreover, dance serves important social, psychological, physical, and cultural functions. So, come on over and enjoy a free cup of juice and iced coffee, while supplies last!
