Bring your lunch and meet other families! There will be resources and a conversation facilitator from Boston Children’s Hospital’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program.
1:30 pm: KidStage show
2:30 pm: Dance workshops by Deafblind dancer, Kerry Thompson
How do you dance if you cannot hear the music?  How do you dance if you cannot see? Is salsa and merengue a food or a dance?  What is bachata? Come find out as Kerry Thompson, a Deafblind dancer and Director for Silent Rhythms Dance, teaches us to think about music and dance in a different way through performances and workshops.
