The Fiesta Asia Street Fair, part of the Asia Heritage Festival is this Saturday, May 22nd, featuring a parade, vendors, food, music, martial arts demonstrations on Pennsylvania Ave. NW between 3rd and 6th Streets. The fun starts at 10:00 AM and goes until 7PM, but the part I am most looking forward to, of course, is the flash mob at 1PM.
Anyone can participate- details, practice music, and choreography are available online. But if you’d like to learn from a real live person, Dhoonya Dance is teaching the dance during their beginner-level class times this week. You can drop in tonight at 6:30 to Saffron Dance at 3260 Wilson Blvd, or on Wednesday at 7PM at the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. Since it’s a regular class slot, the $20 drop-in fee applies.
