Sponsored by: Mothers Out Front Amherst, Climate Action Now, Extinction Rebellion Western Mass, and Amherst Sunrise

We will take downtown Amherst by surprise by bursting into dance on the Common. Come join us! Whoever you are, you are part of this!

We dance to celebrate Our Nature: the environment around us. We love it and we need it. We protect nature because it sustains us.

And we dance to express Our Nature: the spirit within us. Our nature is generous and strong. Our nature is to learn, grow, and adapt.

RSVP to sign up as a dancer – no experience necessary!

Come dance with us!

Young children: Our nature may be small, but it’s might!
  • Some Bugs movement story. Based on the book by Angela Diterlizzi. Created by Ashley and Caddy Carlisle of The Center dance studio.
  • No rehearsals for children’s dance, but dancers are encouraged to join our private Facebook group to see and share their “buggy” dance moves! More information here.

Older kids through adults: Our nature needs a place to be!

  • Dance numbers choreographed to Brazilian and African music. Choreography by Aimee Salmon of Africana Dance and Fitness. Structured improv by Sophie Schilling of The Center dance studio.
  • Rehearsals will take place Fridays at 4pm at Groff Park on April 8, 15, and 22.
