Unite in Dance to Feed Local Families in Need! at Sands Point Preserve

Unite in Dance to Feed Local Families in Need!

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join Sands Point Preserve to unite in a fun dance called the Jerusalema to support Plant a Row for the Hungry, Port Washington.

Over the past few months, Jerusalema by South African DJ Master KG has trended like wildfire on social media. Communities across the world have posted their version of the dance -- please see the video news coverage linked below. Now it's time to show the world what Port Washington can do!

After you register for the event, you'll get an email with an easy to follow, step-by-step video created by Port Washington's Danceworks, NY studio, which will give you a chance to practice the moves in advance of the day. When everyone gathers on the 17th, (outdoors, masked and distanced), Danceworks Instructors will be on hand to lead you in a few lively rehearsals. The final take will be recorded by a drone flying overhead and shared on social media to bring awareness and support to Plant a Row for the Hungry. For unity, please try to wear "Port Washington Blue and White."

BONUS: Your ticket grants you free admission to the Sands Point Preserve starting at noon. Please feel free to spend the afternoon at this local gem - pack a picnic lunch and take a walk on one of the many scenic trails. Advanced registration required.
