Breaking Boundaries, Creating Connections

daCi (dance and the Child international) USA's Fourth National Gathering

July 12-15, 2011

University of North Texas, Denton, TX

Ten Creative Dance Company members, two parents and myself attended the daCi USA conference this summer.  We participated in multi-generational dance making classes, technique and world dance classes, attended worshops and performances and experienced meeting teachers and young dancers from across the United States.  Our company dancers also performed, for the first time at a daCi conference, in the Wednesday evening student dance concert.  They beautifully performed "Rainbow Design" choreographed by Carlos R. Jones, Dance Faculty at Buffalo State College Theatre and Dance Department.  Mr. Jones was one of our 2010-2011 Creative Dance Company guest artists. 

Thank you Ms. Mary Lynn Babcock, UNT, the daCi Board members and daCi teachers ..... we had a wonderful experience!     Buffalo, NY Dancers
