Leap Back to the 80s on Leap Day 2024!

Dance all night, play all day | Don’t let nothin’ get in the way
Dance all night keep the beat | Don’t you worry ’bout two left feet
Shake it up… (The Cars, 1981)


Shake off those winter blues at SHAKE IT UP! On Leap Day 2024, SSAC invites you to leap back in time to the 1980s and dance all night. For one-night-only, our galleries will morph into an 80’s-era Caribbean nightclub. So don those oversized tees and tease your hair or dress as your favorite 1980’s music icon – just make sure you arrive ready to shake it up on the dance floor. Nibbles and beer/wine/specialty rum drinks included.

SHAKE IT UP was inspired by Under the Volcano (2021), that documents the iconic AIR Studios, from which Sir George Martin produced the most iconic sounds from the 1980s, including Duran Duran, Culture Club, Dire Straits and The Police. This music and other hits from MTV’s golden era will be the soundtrack for the evening! Fittingly, all proceeds from SHAKE IT UP will directly support South Shore Art Center’s seminal Artist-in-Residence (or AIR) program which we offer
FREE to 2000 elementary students annually.



AIR –> AIR = a darn good time at SSAC!


Tickets are $ 125.00 per person:
