Court Square Series Wraps up With Acrobats, Bellydancers

The Center City Commission, which July 1 will officially change its name to the Downtown Memphis Development Commission, wraps up its Downtown Alive series for the season this month with an eclectic mix of street performances.

The festivities, which run through the end of June, celebrate the Bluff City’s creative spirit with free lunchtime performances in the heart of Downtown Memphis.

On Tuesday, June 14, Memphians are invited to a live, lunchtime aerial acrobatics performance in Court Square as Live from Memphis presents Valeria’s Wings, performing acrobatic feats alongside wind sculptures from local artist Yvonne Bobo.

And on Wednesday, June 15, the Church Health Center will take over Court Square at lunchtime with a family-fun event featuring children’s music, summer games and prizes.

Thursday’s fun includes a cuff bracelet workshop with staff members from the National Ornamental Metal Museum and a pirate-themed belly dance performance from Desert Rose Dance Company.

The fun kicks off each weekday at 11:45, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch and lawn chairs.

Dawn Vinson with the CCC said there’s a “very strong possibility” that the Downtown Alive series, which began in March, may start up again in the fall.
