Amateur archeology and free concert series coming to Old Town waterfront

For a second year, the Robinson Landing development on the waterfront has announced a series of programs for late summer and early fall, from live music to amateur archeology.

The Owner’s Association for Robinson Landing (7 Pioneer Mill Way) announced a series programs yesterday and a new partnership with the Office of Historic Alexandria.

Every Sunday in August, September and October, Robinson Landing will host classes called “Wellness on the Water.” The August sessions, on Aug. 7, 14, and 21, will be hosted by The MVMMT Society.

“The MVMMT Society team is excited to bring our most waitlisted class to the waterfront at Robinson Landing Pier,” the Owner’s Association said in a release. “HIGH fitness is Old School Aerobics made Modern. Cardio and toning meets Jane Fonda with a side of Richard Simmons. You will have a blast, see real results both physically and mentally, and leave this class wanting more because it’s so much fun.”

The class is 45 minutes and starts at 9 a.m. The release said the workout is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. No equipment is needed and attendees should wear sneakers and workout clothes.

In September and October, the Sunday sessions will be hosted by Bare3 Old Town.

“For September and October, join Barre3 Old Town for a full-body workout that combines strength conditioning, cardio, and mindfulness,” the release said. “The class is 45 minutes and completely adaptable with a variety of options for every posture to truly meet you where you are! Bring a yoga mat and an optional set of handheld weights!”

  • Waterfront Wednesdays Music Series (Aug. 31, Sept. 7, Sept. 14, Sept. 21, Sept. 28, Oct. 5 from 5-7 p.m.) — The Waterfront Wednesday Music Series will be a series of free concerts featuring a range of genres from local musicians.
