Sunrise Tai Chi @ H.H. Biddle House (in Conference House Park)
Aug 12 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am
Spread the love

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation through movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.

Immerse Yourself in the World of the Amazon Original Series with Interactive Sets, Costumes, and Screenings
Step inside the technicolor world of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Amazon Prime Video’s groundbreaking, critically acclaimed comedy from the ingenious mind of auteur Amy Sherman-Palladino. Written and directed by Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the first and only streaming program to win an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Maisel has earned worldwide acclaim for Sherman-Palladino and Palladino’s trademark dialogue, an Emmy and Golden Globe–winning cast, costume design, and production design. As Vulture says, “The late 1950s is evoked beautifully in every detail of every set, and the costumes by Donna Zakowska are glorious.” The series won eight Emmys in 2018 (including four for Sherman-Palladino), and season two of the show is the most-nominated comedy this year, with twenty Emmy nominations in 2019.

With this exhibit, The Paley Center for Media welcomes The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to Fifty-Second Street, offering visitors a magical summertime sojourn to the Maisel world of late-1950s New York.

Your journey starts with a visit to the TV studio for the Arthritis Telethon where Midge made her first television appearance. Costumes from the series are on display as you make your way to B. Altman’s switchboard and Rose’s Paris apartment. Head downstairs to take your picture at the Stage Deli and the Catskills hair salon. Then sit back in our Bennack Theater to enjoy your favorite season two episodes on the big screen.
Thank you and goodnight!

WNSCS Presents: The Rock-A-Silly Band

The Rock-A-Silly Band has been making silly music for seventy-five years. (That’s dog years, for those of you paying attention. (In monkey years it’s four-hundred-twenty-seven-and-a-half years, but let’s not go there, ok?)) The name the Rock-A-Silly Band comes from the Latin phrase, “quod take caput meum ranae,” which loosely translates as “take that frog off my head,” which scholars attribute to Cicero, though Cicero always claimed he was referring to a toad, not a frog, though does it really matter? Hold on, this biography is becoming too silly! Let’s start over, shall we?

The Rock-A-Silly Band is a New York-based group whose unique mixture of music and wacky comedy leaves children and their grown-ups laughing, clapping and dancing in the aisles.The band formed in 2010, and in that time they’ve played to happy families around the New York area, with shows in Central Park’s Peter Jay Sharp Children’s Glade, Manhattan’s Carl Schurz Park and the Staten Island Children’s Museum. The band has a home base at the Staten Island Zoo, where they’re a fixture at two of the zoo’s annual events. Groundhog’s Day where their song “Staten Island Chuck” has become a fan favorite and the always sold out halloween tradition Spooktacular. Their new album “Let’s Get Silly” captures the banter and fun of their live performances, with songs like “Funky Monkey Dance” and “Cheers for the Broccoli” bringing joy to children and their families.
