Over 130 students from CityDance’s after-school DREAM program will perform during halftime when the Washington Wizards take on the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday, March 9 at 8:00pm at Verizon Center.
This is CityDance’s seventh time performing at a Washington Wizards halftime show. This year will mark the first year that alumni from CityDance’s DREAM program will return to take center court. In total, 19 alumni will perform. The returning particip
ants are part of CityDance’s new middle school initiative, which aims to retain alumni as mentors, student leaders and guest dancers.
The performance is a pivotal element of the year-round DREAM program, which uses dance as a vehicle to teach self-empowerment and civic engagement to local students. Focusing on children in underserved communities in Wards 1, 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8, the DREAM program spends months preparing its students for the incredible opportunity of performing on the Verizon Center’s court.
