On Saturday, Oct. 1, more than 100 people are expected to come together for a Zumbathon dance party under the tent on the Science Center Plaza. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., instructors will guide everyone through a fun mix of music and dance including salsa, merengue, reggaetón, and hip hop. Light refreshments will also be served.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online or at the event which is sponsored by the Center for Wellness and Harvard Common Spaces, a program working to strengthen the sense of community on Harvard’s campus.
All proceeds benefit Y2Y Harvard Square, a student-run overnight shelter employing a youth-to-youth model to provide a safe and affirming environment for young adults experiencing homelessness.
