There is nothing quite like the thrill of seeing a basketball game in the stadium at which it is being played. People from all over rally together for a few glorious, unforgettable moments to watch their favorite team go head-to-head with their opponent. It's an event like no other. On Sunday (3/5/17), I had the distinct pleasure of going to the most recent Washington Wizards game here in DC courtesy of City Dance Dream. I along with my sisters helped aide the dance troupe (which consists of elementary to high school aged children from Washington DC) in preparing them for their big halftime show performance at the event. The pulsating excitement of the kids as well as the City Dance Dream coordinators and dance instructors could be felt and heard by everyone in attendance. As the children lined up to go onto the floor, I trailed behind them and was able to sit courtside to watch their performance up close! That was a really neat experience. The City Dance Dream troupe's performance was well received by the crowd and the kids looked like they were having the time of their lives. They gave expressive faces, held their stances, executed their choreography well, and danced their hearts out. They really did leave it all on the floor! City Dance as an organization does a lot of good in their community and it was an invaluable experience to witness that first hand. "CityDance DREAM is a nationally recognized after-school program, providing dance classes, performance opportunities, mentoring, tutoring and college counseling to students from underserved communities across Washington, DC. DREAM has been serving youth in grades three through twelve at public schools and community sites across the nation’s capital since 2005. DREAM’s mission is to use dance as a pathway for youth to graduate from high school, discover their potential and pursue their dreams. " (https://www.citydance.net/dream/dreamprogram)
To top off what was a very eventful evening, I even got a chance to see and briefly chat with Entertainment Journalist, Gia Peppers backstage, just before she did her live segments (an unexpected, but very pleasant surprise). Thank you to CityDance for having us be apart of your special evening! Keep up the great work!
