In this week’s weird weekend activities: This Sunday, January 31st, the Mütter Museum — you know, the one filled with cabinets upon cabinets of medical instruments and anatomical specimens — is hosting a dance workshop. And like the Mütter Museum, it sounds kind of weird.

The dance workshop, called the “Embodied Embryology Dance Workshop” will be led by Nicole Bindler, a body-based artist who teaches dance and yoga an universities around the city. As the description for the dance workshop, which will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, says, “In this workshop we will learn about the process of how we became through imagery, movement and creative practice. We will study the three embryonic germ layers: endoderm, ectoderm and mesoderm. We will explore how these three original layers exist in more differentiated forms in our present day adult body.” Like I said, a little weird. But hey, weird can be good!

Dance newbies are welcome and registration for the class ($27.37) gets you admission into the museum for the day, too. Just make sure to wear clothes you can move in. You can find out more about the class and get tickets here.
