Do you dance three or more styles of dancing in addition to Latin, and are you interested in working with a Fusion Dance Company? If so, contact with a summary of your background. A Fusion Team is working on a show for next spring that will include some musical theater, contact improv, abstract/contemporary pieces, etc. We are currently auditioning dancers with a broad background of dance styles. Rehearsals are alternate Sunday evenings.

3. Thanksgiving at the ECAC

On Thanksgiving day, the ECAC (Emergence Community Arts Collective) is continuing its annual tradition of giving thanks and sharing a potluck Thanksgiving dinner together. This community tradition began when the originator of the ECAC, Sylvia Robinson, started hosting Thanksgiving events years ago. In her memory, the arts collective is generously continuing to welcome the public to this event. Bring a dish to share; turkey will be provided by the ECAC. It is 3 to 7 pm at the lower FICA studio which is the ground floor level room. Please RSVP at
