More Information on Events and Classes

Forever Fit & Fun Club is a movement and music class designed with those 55 years and older in mind. Dance & Bmore facilitators use movement, music and memories games to stimulate students imagination and cognitive function. Forever Fit & Fun is both structured and improvisational at times, allowing many ways for participants to be engaged, active and creative. Dance & Bmore’s ‘Memory Based Movement’ uses prompts and storytelling to capture the memories of seniors and encapsulate them in spoken-word, music and dance. The group dynamic of the class is designed to strengthen relationships and build a sense of community and well being.

VOICES OF CARMEN is a musical adaptation of the opera Carmen. and a new work developed through youth centered conversation and collaboration. This original production written and directed by CJay Philip, debuted in Baltimore, Maryland July 31st, 2019, and was featured at the DC Black Theater Festival, The Atlanta Black Theater Festival, and the Kennedy Center Page to Stage Festival.
This musical, set in a High School, is filled with fresh yet familiar renditions of George Bizet’s  compositions as well as original music and rhythms that capture the voice and soul of today’s youth. A theme within the production is ‘crossroads’ and the critical moments of reaction that lead you down one road or another. Post performance dialogue examines the range of conflicts in the opera and how we relate and resolve conflict in our own lives.
