Stories That Move You

In strictlybaltimore on December 5, 2012 at 9:40 am


A Celebration of Books, Reading, and Urban Dance

This Saturday, December 8 from 9:30 – 12 PM @ Patterson Park Public Charter School, The Baltimore Dance Crews Project is partnering up with Reading Partners to host “Stories That Move You.”

Baltimore Dance Crews Project and Reading Partners created this event out of their same desire to help youth reach their full potential, BDCP through dance and Reading Partners through reading skills.

The event is two programs in one. The first half is a reading hour and the second half is a dance workshop.

The program is free but monetary and elementary-level book donations are highly encouraged.

If you would just like to help, volunteers are needed ASAP. If you are interested, contact BDCP in the information below.
