Family Science Afternoon
An interactive and rewarding way to engage kids and their families in the library through STEM activities.
Tuesday July 10, 4 pm, Downtown Reno Library
Local choreographers take traditional and contemporary dance off the stage and into a whole new environment with Destination Dance. The tour route, which includes the Downtown Reno Library, will be approximately one mile and will take about an hour to complete.
Will sings and plays all original silly songs on guitar, ukulele and harmonica. Enjoy audience participation that is fun and engaging for people of all ages. An audience favorite at every show is when I make up a song on the spot based on suggestions from the audience. If you're inspired to learn the guitar or ukulele, check out Lynda.com! (see above)
