Rise Up and Dance! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Coming to the end of the 10-week long Intensive Culture Residency (ICR) project by Cityfolk is “Rise Up and Dance!” a final show choreographed by Rodney Veal that will showcase the participants’ personal stories and community transformation from throughout the intensive program focusing on the arts with kids in inner city neighborhoods Fairview, Twin Towers and Wright Dunbar.
