BENITA BIKE’S DANCEART TO PERFORM AT
DISCOVERY CUBE LOS ANGELES’ SCIENCE OF DANCE DAY

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 1, 2022) – Studies show that dancing can make people happier; when we dance, our brains release endorphins which make us feel better. Also, dance movement can also be a wonderful source of expressive storytelling. On Saturday, December 3, 2:00 pm, Benita Bike’s DanceArt will present an exciting educational dance performance at Discovery Cube Los Angeles, a STEM-based children’s museum, as part of the Cube’s Science of Dance Day. As part of the day’s programming, Benita Bike’s DanceArt will present two full-length dances followed by a Q&A session and a final short “try-out-the-moves” session with DanceArt’s professional dancers. Museum visitors will learn all about modern dance’s approach to movement. Two dances will be featured – “Benches,” which shows people in a park during the day, and “Plugged,” which explores our relationships with machines in the world.

A limited number of free tickets to the museum are available to those who pre-register by emailing benita@danceart.org with their name and the number of guests in their party. This performance is supported, in part, by the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department. General admission tickets can also be purchased at www.discoverycube.org/los-angeles/. Attendance to the Science of Dance’s programming and the dance performances will be included with general admission or a valid membership. Discovery Cube LA is located at 11800 Foothill Blvd., Sylmar, CA, 91342.
