Live to Dance with The Arc Stars
"Think of it as a 'Special Olympics of dance,'" explained Trish Welch, Executive Director of The Arc, located at 121 N. Central Avenue. On March 14, The Ark will host the 5th annual Live to Dance with The Arc Stars event at the Cascade Pavilion at Cascade Christian High School. "The night is all about inclusiveness, and all forms of dance will be showcased, from hip hop to jazz, ballroom to reggae pop – even a lyrical wheelchair dance, will be performed."
The event is also a fundraiser to help support programs that The Arc offers. The Arc Jackson County is a local chapter of the national organization, which serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy, etc.
