To commemorate National Dance Week, Walker Art Center performing arts program manager Michele Steinwald sent out a call to 300 people in the Twin Cities dance community to gravitate to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Tuesday afternoon for a group photo in front of Spoonbridge and Cherry. Only two dozen showed up, not counting two dogs in tow, but Steinwald sees it as the launching pad to an annual photo shoot to mark this otherwise under-the-radar week.

On the Walker Art Center calendar, you’ll find dates (April 10-12) for the premiere of the break/s, Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s new dance/theater piece.

The fruits of their labor, inspired by the upcoming Republican National Convention in St. Paul, are on display in a free program Thursday in the Walker Cinema.
