Boston Landmarks Orchestra: Footloose and Fancy Free

Movers and shakers from across the city converge on the Esplanade for a celebration of American and international dance. Leonard Bernstein’s Fancy Freetakes pride of place in an original interpretation by Yo-El Cassell and Boston-based performers. Youth from area Boys and Girls Clubs will “shake the Shell” along with outstanding companies of Armenian and Latin America dancers.
