Calling All Performers!

We have been asked to do a performance at Global Fest in West Lafayette IN and then a workshop immediately following the show. 

Our MIss Judi and Miss Susan who will be heading up this event and our Lafayette studio  could use a little help in terms of ANYONE interested in performing, meaning dancers from ALL of our studios. (That includes the Jump’n Jig kids)

Here are the details:
Date:   9/16/2023
DARBT:  2:30

Perform:   3:00 - 3:20ish
Workshop:   4:00 - 4:30ish West Lafayette Public Library

Come see us dance at Global Fest on Sept. 16, 2023 at 3:00.  This one-day Global Fest celebrates world cultures through music, dance, crafts, displays, and international food. Continuous stage entertainment, cultural displays, and children's activities are among the free activities. Admission is free!

This will be considered a PRACTICE day for all of our Lafayette IN dancers, but for any of the Ohio dancers - I will offer a FREE session for anyone that signs up for the performance and workshop.
