SciPort: audience participation in program on Black influence in music & dance on Feb 5, 12, 26 & 27

Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center will celebrate Black History Month in February through four presentations that invite audience participation as they explore Black Influence in Music and Dance.

Developed and led by Sci-Port’s Greg Andrews, programs include:
* Wit with Words - Freestyle
Friday, February 5, 11 a.m. & 3:30 p.m.

Visitors will test their skills in rhythm, rhyme and freestyling. A popular trend in the music world, freestyling also tests the use of the English language, coherency, memory and quickness of brain power.

* Steppin’ it Out!
Friday, February 12, 11 a.m. & 3:30 p.m.
Visitors can bring a simple clap, stomp and slide to generate a flow of dance moves that get the whole audience involved.

* Stop, Pop and Roll With It!
Friday, February 26, 11 a.m. & 3:30 p.m.
This program will explore the history of Black Americans who have contributed to and revolutionized dancing, including James Brown and Michael Jackson. The importance of coordination and aerobic exercise and the body parts and muscles that facilitate dance movement will also be examined.

* Putting It All Together
Saturday, February 27, 1:30 p.m.
Highlights of the previous three programs will be presented and visitors can share a freestyle rhyme or any form of dance movement.
