Tropical Thursdays

“It’s really a way to tap into other communities and really give the people of Memphis a sense of ownership of the riverfront…As we practiced, a bunch of people came up who were interested in learning as well, so we really transitioned into an opportunity where we could interact with people in this space who weren’t necessarily exposed to this style of dancing.”

Memphis Magazine spotlights Tropical Thursdays, a weekly public dance program, and how the design and management of River Garden offers a platform for others to co-create the civic commons in Memphis.
