The Broad Stage introduces its upcoming 2019-20 season at Broad Fest, an annual open house of live music, dance, workshops and food spread across several areas. You can listen to swing and Latin salsa and funk by the She Sings She Swings and Boogaloo Assassins, and additional music by members of the Santa Monica College Music Department and KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez, who’ll be spinning tunes. And you can watch Viver Brasil perform Afro-Brazilian dance. Better yet, take part in workshops that teach dance, art-making and screen printing, as well as guided tours of the Broad Stage and “Made in California: Contemporary Art from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation” at SMC’s Barrett Gallery, an exhibit of works by California artists from the 1950s to the present.
