Today at Olana

The Olana Partnership holds its monthly Third Thursday event today, on the first day of summer, from 12:30 to 7:00 p.m. Olana Third Thursdays are monthly community days of free tours and programs at the Olana State Historic Site.

Today, participants can explore Bollywood dancing during a free class and performance with instructor Arobi. They can learn moves to trendy and iconic Bollywood songs during a fun, beginner friendly outdoor class and then stick around for a special performance on the East Lawn from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. The class is designed for participants ages 12 and up.

Immediately following the Bollywood performance, Trio Candela will celebrate the beginning of summer, performing lively traditional, folkloric Latin music from the Caribbean, Mexico, and Latin America. This performance will also take place on the East Lawn near the Main House from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Visitors are also invited to attend free tours of the historic landscape, house, and the special exhibition Afterglow: Frederic Church and the Landscape of Memory. Tickets are available on site, starting at 12:30 p.m. today, on a first come, first served basis. Tours and programs will be offered in both Spanish and English. Spanish tours will be given at 1:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Generous support for Olana Third Thursdays is provided by Art Bridges Foundation's "Access for All" program. To learn more about each month's programs and upcoming events, or to secure free tickets, visit or call (518) 751-0344.
