Our World Dance Festival on November 7th at the Faison Firehouse Theater in Harlem was a resounding success. We had seven traditional dance companies representing India, Japan, West Africa, Indonesia, Bulgaria and Spain with crafts and food tastings-- it was a marathon day of cultural diversity. Thank you all who helped us to match our National Endowment for the Arts grant! Please click here to view highlights of the show.
Our next program will be our annual World in the City: Comparison of Dance Styles on Sunday, March 20th, please save the date for a fascinating look at Chinese dances from folk to court to Chinese Opera. This program along with our Arts in Education World Dance Passport program which brings 6-8 week residencies into the public schools is supported in part by the New York State Council on the Arts and is also on a matching basis. Last year we visited 15 schools and reached approximately 5,320 school children. Please help us to reach our goal and support our efforts to preserve these precious cultural treasures. Looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
Wishing you all the best for the new year.
