This year’s event was a beautiful thing. 65+ dancers of many ages came. We raised $2,500 at the door with more donations coming in and corporate matching funds to add soon. Our musicians Thierno Diop, Caxambu Silverman, Denny Stern, Shemayim Elohim and Larry Swanson created such wonderful music to inspire and bring us all together in movement and spirit. Stay tuned for moire details and images.
Here comes my favorite event of the year where the musicians and I donate our time and ARC DANCE donates the space for this wonderful session that has become a beloved local tradition inviting a broad community to come together, dance, and share our resources with meaningful micro-lending projects in Africa.
