On Oct. 2, Stepping Out Dance Studios (pictured) will offer free dance lessons at the Brooklyn Museum. The hour-long clinic, which begins at 8 pm, will teach visitors how to cut a rug in time for a 9 pm dance party featuring music and tango dancing by Pablo Aslan’s Avantango.

In addition to the museum’s First Saturday dance party, there will be screenings of films including Paul Grimault’s 1980 family-friendly animated film "Le Roi et L’oiseau" (about a palace where portraits come to life); a performance by the French band Bebe Eiffel; a clay sculpture class; and lectures by sculptor Roz Kochman (about Auguste Rodin) and Eric Monacelli (about images of the body in Victorian and modern art).

Admission to the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights) is free from 5 pm to 11 pm. The cafe will be open and a cash bar will offer wine and beer. For more information, call (718) 638-5000 or visit the Web site at
