Dancing in the Cave: An Early Morning Dance Party

Thursday, February 2, 2023 -
8:00am to 9:30am
Maxwell Museum

Looking for a fun, healthy & energetic way to start your day? Then join us and dance, as our human ancestors once did.

This Groundhog Day join the group of students, staff, and faculty that will gather to dance in and around the Maxwell Museum’s “cave” that’s part of our Ancestors exhibit. As singer-songwriter and Grammy-award winner Jorge Drexler states, “We [humans] were already making music way before we knew agriculture.”

Moreover, enjoy a free glass of fresh juice (while supplies last), complements of the Museum! (Apple-carrot-ginger juice, anyone?). After an hour or so of dancing, we will collectively squash a 2-foot tall paper mâché “Groundhog” piñata in the Museum Courtyard. This time-tested ritual, it is said, sends out energy into the world and helps Spring arrive early.

Registration is not required but highly helpful; this way you'll be able to tell us what veggies and fruits we should buy for your favorite juice as well as contribute to the growing collective playlist of music we will be playing!
