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. The project’s goal is to pair internationally-renowned artists with local artists and community organizations, and work with at-risk youth to create a moving final performance told through diverse music and dance from urban Los Angeles, all the way to Africa. The final “Rise Up and Dance!”  performance will take place on Saturday, March 19 at 6 p.m. at the Stivers School for the Arts Auditorium at 1313 East 5th St. in Dayton. Tickets are $10 and are available by calling the Cityfolk box office at (937) 496-3863 or by visiting their website at www.cityfolk.org.
