The Fernbank Museum announces it will add “Salsa Nights” to its popular Martinis & IMAX® program. Be sure to mark your calendars for every third Friday of the month to experience a night of Latin dancing and fun.

Martinis & IMAX® offers a unique atmosphere of dinosaurs, drinks, music, film and culture mixed together in a state of the art museum. Local dance enthusiasts come from all over to partake in the entertainment. Come early on and practice your dance techniques with the Salsambo Dance Studio.
