Last Wednesday night, November 6, Performing Arts Workshop held “A Taste of Performing Arts Workshop,” an event to both thank the Workshop’s supporters, and to introduce new faces to our work and mission. 

Held at the African American Art and Culture Complex, the night involved:

     –       A special drinks tasting for our 21+ guests

     –       A dance class with World Dance Teaching Artist Ms. Amani

     –       Award-winning students performing spoken word poetry

     –       A free raffle for Workshop swag and a wine-tasting at Kenwood Vineyards

     –       Appetizers and drinks donated by local businesses

Firstly, we’d like to say a huge “THANK YOU” to all those who made it to the event!  We hope you had as much fun as we did eating, dancing, whisky tasting, and watching the inspirational performances!

We also want to extend our sincerest appreciation to the following businesses for their in-kind support of this event.  The support of community partners is essential in helping us continue our vital arts education programs, and we cannot thank them enough!
