POSTCARDS FROM OUR GLOBALOCAL PAST!


Having The Alberto Maranhao Theater Dance Company in residence for three weeks was a dream come true for all!

Globalocal was a dream mix of our neighbors, from Norway, Southern Maine, Rwanda and Nepal. All together...dancing!

Mardi Gras was a joyous blast of a collaboration with The Ballroom.  Folks turned out in droves and celebrated in style!
WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO -
ALONG WITH WEEKLY CLASSES FOR NEIGHBORHOOD KIDS:
LOCAL AND GLOBAL EXCHANGE OF ART AND IDEAS ELEVATES US ALL!

Our History

Niles still guides us...away from cynicism...toward the light

OUR FIRST GALA WAS A SMASHING SUCCESS!

THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED, DONATED, AND DANCED THE CHARLESTON

TO SUPPORT OUR NEW MISSION: GATSBY GALA NOVEMBER 2013
