July Dance Showcase at the Rotary House!
- Dear Dancers,
Come be a part of the July Dance Showcase at the Rotary House
All types of dances are welcome!
Friday, July 18th, 7:30 p.m.
The Rotary House International Hotel
1600 Holcombe Blvd. @ Braeswood
Houston, TX 77030
As some of you might already know, I work at M.D. Anderson Cancer
Center. On the MDA campus, there is the Rotary House International.
It is a hotel that is part of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (it's
physically connected to the hospitals) and only patients and their
family members are allowed to stay here. There are people here from
all over the U.S. and also all over the world. Many people have to
stay here weeks and months at a time for treatment!!
One of the services that the Rotary House offers is providing a series
of weekly events for the patients and families. They are currently
looking for dance volunteers to come over and share their talents with
us. The monthly dance exhibitions draw a great crowd and the people
always leave happy and uplifted. They tell us that it is one of their
favorite ways to get their minds off of the difficulties that they
have to face each day.
So, if you have a routine or show that you've been working on and
would like to practice in front of an audience, please consider
sharing your time with us. If you don't usually perform, but wouldn't
mind doing some freestyles, this would be a great opportunity for
you!--or any combination of these things. They would love to have you!!
If you are interested or would like some more info, please let me know
and I will get you in touch with the coordinator for this event. It
would be fabulous to share our love of dance with these people!!
I've done this event once or twice when I had a routine to put out on
the floor, and a group of us also went just to do some WCS and Lindy
Freestyle for the patients and their families. They LOVED watching all
the swing dancing, especially the lindy hoppers! For those of you who
have participated in the past, THANK YOU!!!
Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
