We are grateful for the sponsors of this FREE public performance!
Join our Master of Ceremonies Omari Tau for a celebration of music and dance, sharing the variety of our art, and introducing our audiences to the work of these partner organizations. During the past year, we have grown to understand just how important collaboration has been to each of us to survive and thrive. Therefore, we want to come back together and support each other through this next stage of re-opening.

Our goal is to come back collaboratively with fellow artistic companies, share our talents, and join our audiences in joyous celebration of our return and re-opening!
