Looking Ahead: Pick Your Seat Night, National Dance Day and Graffiti Jam!
It will be a busy week here at Blumenthal Performing Arts, as we get ready for the arrival of two FREE events this Saturday! On July 25, Charlotte’s streets will be filled with dance and graffiti as National Dance Day and Graffiti Jam take over uptown Charlotte.
In addition to these two Saturday events, we are also hosting a third free event, Pick Your Seat Night, on Monday, June 27. Pick Your Seat Night provides theater fans the opportunity to choose their own season seats for the 2015-16 PNC Broadway Lights season.
National Dance Day will be held July 25 from 1-4:30 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Plaza.
It is a grassroots initiative to encourage the nation, young and old, to move! Blumenthal will join hundreds of other organizations across the country in hosting an array of participatory dance activities.
To give you a taste of what’s to come with Breakin’ Convention, the international festival of hip-hop dance theater headed to Charlotte Oct. 9-10, Graffiti Jam will be held on July 25 at the former Goodyear Auto Service Center, 100 E. Stonewall St. It will be buzzing with live graffiti art demonstrations, dance cyphers, live disc jockeys and much more. People of all ages are invited to try their hand at tagging or they can just enjoy the talent of local graffiti artists as they paint canvases of all shapes and sizes.
Drop by Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center on Monday, July 27, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and check out your seating options at PICK YOUR SEAT NIGHT.
