8:30pm lesson by Andrés García of Latin Dance Bend
A portion of proceeds will go to Rise Up International's local Latino youth arts programming
Day of the Dead-themed costumes encouraged!
I am excited to announce our upcoming bash honoring this beloved Latin American holiday! Featuring some of our favorite usual suspects...Andrés García of Latin Dance Bend offering up a dance class prior to our performance PLUS we will have the full 6-piece with Jon Harnum joining us on trumpet / keys and Heather Fossmo on vocals!
Also, some of you may know that our annual Bend Roots Revival Festival, which raises funds for very impactful local youth arts education, suffered some substantial loss due to the unfortunate cold snap / crazy late-September rain and snow. SO, we feel honored to be contributing a portion of our proceeds from this night to Rise Up International to buffer some of the loss and specifically to support a newer branch of this organization reaching local Latino youth. I got to be part of this launch when I came to a primarily Latino youth recreation program and taught some songs in Spanish this past summer!
SO for a night of fun, dancing, dressing up in your favorite Day of the Dead garb, AND supporting local Latino youth arts programming - what is not feel-good about this party, eh?? We hope you will join us in the spirit of celebration, unity, and community y'all.
