Oh what a night!!! This community is impressive.
Think about it:
+12 people, very busy people, learned dance routines and rehearsed them in all of their "spare time."
+10 professional dancers chose music, choreographed dances, and turned non-dancers into dancers.
+ 11 people planned, organized and executed an amazing pre-party and post-party to make the evening a spectacular event.
+26 people took their places to make sure the event went smoothly
+3 individuals lent their expertise to judge the dances
+1 person served as emcee with incredible wit and showbiz elan
+1 person planned, envisioned and executed incredible lights, sound and video effects
+ 230 people filled the seats to support their friends
+many, many people voted for weeks leading up to the show
+25 board members promoted and supported the event
+8 arts team members coordinated, organized, promoted, stage managed, and counted votes
Working together for something greater than ourselves brings us such satisfaction, doesn't it? People discover a deep comraderie doing something together that benefits others.
Last night the energy was electric! The enthusiasm was high! From beginning to end was a true work of art, from the food and tent and decorations, to the spectacular show, to the dancing under the stars to the music by a great deejay.
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with all of these giving individuals. On the heels of a brutal election season it fills my heart to be a part of such joyful occasion.
Thank you for caring deeply for our community. The arts bring us together and help us see each other in a way that embraces our differences.
You raised $51,000 for the arts in our wonderful community! #dancingforthearts2016 #cabarrusartscouncil #yayart
