Urban Expedition China Rescheduled and Black Sea Odyssey Goes Virtual

An Important Update to Landmark Center Community Programs Scheduling:

We appreciate your support of our Community Programs and thank so many of you for coming out to our fall events. Some decisions have recently been made to our upcoming programs that we would like to inform you of.

In an effort to keep our community partners and community safe, and due to the recent surge in COVID-19 Omicron cases, Urban Expedition China – originally scheduled for January 16, 2022 – has been rescheduled to February 20, 2022 from 1-3pm. We look forward to celebrating the cultures and traditions of China in partnership with the amazing CAAM Chinese Dance Theater at a safer time!

Black Sea Odyssey – originally scheduled for February 20, 2022 – has been moved to a virtual event with the help of our community partner, Ethnic Dance Theatre. There will be no in-person program for this event, but you can enjoy from the comfort of your homes! Stay tuned for a link to virtual programming for the Black Sea Odyssey virtual event premiere at the end of March 2022.

Please continue to check our website,, and social media channels for the most up to date information on scheduling. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see everyone (safely) at an upcoming program at Landmark Center soon!
