What's Happening in Greenwich on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

A look at what's happening — and what's not in Greenwich on Martin Luther King Jr. Day — in and around Greenwich.

Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Family Day Celebration

Celebrate Martin Luther King Day at The Bruce Museum with performances by Connecticut's Arts for Learning Hip Hop Dimensions at 11 a.m. and again at 1 p.m., Monday, Jan. 20.

This is a diverse collection of dancers with raw talent in Hip-Hop and Break Dancing. While electrifying audiences, they inspire youth to think of dancing as a positive outlet for artistic expression. Audiences are educated on the history, culture, foundation, and the dance styles of Hip-Hop.

Students of all ages and abilities will also have the opportunity to make "I Have a Dream..." buttons and add their self-portraits to the Circle of Friends mural, as well as explore the Museum's galleries and exhibitions.

All events are free with admission to the museum, 1 Museum Dr., that is scheduled to be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
