CityDance Wants to ‘Move the City’

Posted May 24, 2013 at 2:02pm

There are times in life when words aren’t enough. For more than 120 D.C. students, this is one of those times.

Participants in CityDance’s DREAM program have spent a school year completing community-based service projects, and on  June 1 they are heading to THEARC at 1901 Mississippi Ave. SE to dance all about it for their program “Move the City.”

The DREAM program seeks to combine dance, youth empowerment and community engagement. The program is open to students in grades three through eight and is held at schools in Wards 1, 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8.

In this self-produced production, the students will perform pieces they choreographed that are inspired by their year of community service projects. It all starts at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
