NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences
55 Music Concourse Dr, San Francisco, California 94118
This week, NightLife explores the science and beauty of motion in the natural world—and on the dance floor.
Music by Sweater Funk DJs
→ Brush up your moves and try out a dance class, including a rhythm and motion class from Dudley Flores, Artistic Director of Rhythm & Motion, at the Alonzo King LINES Ballet Dance Center and ODC School.
→ Don't Worry, Beyoncé! Strut your stuff and learn some of Queen Bey's best moves. Follow that up with a Totally 90s Hip-Hop class —all moves taught by the pop-loving instructors at ConfiDance.
→ Explore human-animal relationships with Humanimal, an
interactive projection that lets you communicate with a gorilla.
→ In the Piazza, choreographer Katerina Wong presents Speck, a dance performance about humans, space exploration, and the connections between the two, using sounds from the Voyager Golden Record and other NASA missions.
→ Learn about human and robotic movements side-by-side with San Francisco State University’s Department of Kinesiology.
→ And finally, explore movement on a much larger scale—which Californians know all too well—with two screenings of Earthquake in the Morrison Planetarium.
