Looking for something to celebrate this weekend? How about Yuri Gagarin's journey into outer space?

(April 14) The lasting legacy of Yuri Gagarin
If you’re looking to celebrate something, anything this weekend, Artisphere in Arlington hosts Yuri’s Night all night Saturday. The event marks the 51st anniversary of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s historic voyage into outer space. Dozens of artists, performers, and musicians collaborate to bring you visual art, burlesque performances, a spooky science-fiction stage show, and a lunar dance party.

(April 13-15) Creating the Magic
An earthly dance party is performed all weekend at Strathmore in North Bethesda. The Washington area’s CityDance Ensemble presents Creating the Magic, a show of innovative student works and Brazilian-inspired pieces.

(April 13-14) Affirmations for a New World
For some distinctly American sounds, D.C.’s Sweet Honey in the Rock teams up with the NSO Pops tonight and tomorrow night at the Kennedy Center. The female a cappella group makes its mark on classic compositions by Bernstein and Ellington, and premieres a commissioned piece by the Berklee College of Music’s Bill Banfield

Music: “Moon and Stars (Remix Instrumental)” by Clams Casino
