Amman’s Heartbeat: A Night of Acoustic Expression @ Somewhere Else
September 10 @ 6:30 p.m.
We all feel the need to express ourselves every once in a while, be it in the form of poetry, spoken word, or music. Amman’s Heartbeat is a safe space where you can showcase your talents and dish out your feelings to an eager crowd in a safe space. Be sure to sign up by messaging the organizer beforehand in order to get the chance to perform!

Jeem Jazz Live @ Maestro
September 11 @ 9:00 p.m.
Do you appreciate jazz music but can’t find a safe haven away from cigarette smoke? Local and aptly named jazz band, Jeem Jazz, is taking to the stage at Maestro this Wednesday in a non-smoking event. Keep your inhalers at home, Tipsters! Your lungs need a chance at breathing oxygen.
Shabjdeed Sindibad x Amman @ Spago

Random House Live @ Corner’s Pub

Free Salsa Class @ Roberto Dance Academy
September 12 @ 7:00 p.m.
Grab your dancing shoes and get out of that comfort zone, because Roberto Dance Academy are holding a free salsa class this Thursday. Realistically speaking, an hour-long class isn’t enough for you to master the art of this dance, but you’ll still be partying with your peers afterwards. Inhibitions? We don’t know her.
AcroYoga workshop @ Prana Space
September 14 @ 5:30 p.m.
Do you ever get tired of basic, boring yoga? That’s why AcroYoga was invented (we assume)! Combining elements of acrobatics, yoga, and Thai massage, AcroYoga helps enhance your sense of balance, control, and communication. Reach self-awareness and internal peace, and keep an eye out for the end-of-session flying therapeutics on the agenda!
Price: 25 JD
Mukawer Cycling Trip @ Cycling Jordan

JR Picnic ’19 @ Bisharat Golf Club
September 13 @ 12:00 p.m.
JR Wines’ Picnic events are a celebration of wine, good music, and the outdoors.
