The Children's Museum of Manhattan will install a new exhibition and program series, "Dance Portal," designed to extend and connect the four strategic focus areas outlined in the museum's long range plan: the arts and creativity, health, early childhood, and culture. "The Dance Portal," an immersive interactive environment consisting of a vertical dome/panoramic screen programmed to feature videos of dance as it relates to art, creativity, culture, and health. The installation will be complemented by live performances and hands-on workshops featuring presentations by professional dancers, dance educators and cultural partners. Through these programs, the museum seeks to better serve its community by creating new interpretive programs and engaging learning experiences, and by providing high-quality, inclusive educational opportunities for families to learn about the city's vast cultural riches.
