We Love Afrika!


Last night Step Afrika “stepped” off the beginning of their tour throughout the wards! If you have yet to see this talented group this FREE tour around the city is the perfect opportunity to get familiar with their talent! And for those of you who have attended a Step Afrika performance prior I’m sure you’ve already made arrangements.

The energy at TheArc in Ward 8 last night was positively elevated, as people of all ages Sold Out the venue eagerly filling the theatre anticipating a good time. We enjoy theatre as a family, we enjoy movement and our connection to uplifting African American moments runs deep. 


The show had a bit of education regarding the origins of stepping, tons of crowd participation, as well as live music just to highlight a few elements. SN: I was personally thrilled to see one of my Fellow Elon Alum shining so brightly throughout the performance. *Go Dionne Go!*

Here is the link to reserve your tickets for the tour and more info/ show offerings from Step Afrika 


Princess Liv took sometime to read her brochure while experiencing an interactive exhibit at TheArc.

National Children’s Museum at National Harbor is always a good place for the kids to get some energy out! Sunday they will partner with Kids Euro Fest for a dance program 11am-12
We are members here , and I’m debating getting another membership for 2014… The Baltimore Port Discovery location has so much more to engage with. However, the outdoor experience will be open soon and we are excited about that. Also, the discounts with partner museums make the membership worthwhile.

We usually spend quite a bit of time down at the harbor when we go. Across the street is Oxon Hill Farm which is great to visit and enjoy the animals. They also have a picnic area if you want to enjoy a little packed lunch.

Happy Weekend! What do you guys have planned?
