Zaccho Dance keeps it in the family


Thirty years of surviving and thriving in an area as competitive as dance, and twenty year of community involvement is more than enough of a reason for a party. Let's say a big gala with invited donors who can help balance the budget? A retrospective of what has gone well? Nope. That's not how Joanna Haigood's head works. For her, it's a reason for "Family Day," an open house for the community with classes for the youngest and those a little stiff around the edges. So how about Movement and Storytelling for kids, hip-hop for teens, a Dance Work Out for a sedentary parent, and Circus Art for grandma. She won't swing from the trapeze, but her spirit will get a boost. Each 45-minute class starts on the hour, and food and refreshments are provided.

Sat/6, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., free
