Event Description:

Runner-up for the Central Indiana Senior Fund's "Dreaming a New Age: Living into the Choices and Decisions of Aging" Award. Martindale Brightwood youth and seniors will demonstrate intergenerational learning through dance, music, and fun during this “role-reversal” dance event.

Edna Martin Christian Center has created a series of interactive activities that stimulate inter-generational community-building and dialogue, exploring a myriad of topics in playful, thoughtful, and action-provoking ways. This effort has been led by two distinctly different groups: high school students and members of the neighborhood's senior community. Jitterbug on Fleek is the culminating event of an inter-generational exercise between youth and senior citizen program participants of the Edna Martin Christian Center and partner programs. The event blends two generational cultures in a fun-filled, come-and-go style, dance engagement.

Come out to 37 Place to learn more about the Martindale Brightwood neighborhood and its amazing residents. Seniors and youth will entertain with clothing and dance style swap you won’t soon forget!

Admission at the door or in advance by calling the Edna Martin Christian Center at (317) 637-3776.

Presented by the Edna Martin Christian Center, Foster Grandparents Program/Community Action of Greater Indianapolis, Martindale Brightwood Golden Agers, and One Voice--Martindale Brightwood.
