Dance is not limited to a certain style or technique.

Dance is the birthright of all human beings. If you can breathe, you can dance!

Upcoming Events

_MG_0380Last Saturday’s Holiday Event at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility with Hour Children was so sweet! We are honored to have been there to provide entertainment for the kids, their parents and guardians. Newman’s drum circle and our in-prompt to dance circle where kids made a dance and free-styled was SO MUCH FUN!

Other activities that day included bracelet making, weaving and silhouette art, origami, paper instruments; food and family time with boardgames and more!

Love Hour Children and the work they do. Click here for more info on their programs at Bedford Hills:
