Bowen McCauley Dance presents the 6th Annual Move Me Festival on Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Kenmore Middle School in Arlington, VA. This year’s event includes over twenty arts, fitness, and cultural organizations from our community.
Anticipating nearly 1,000 attendees, Move Me is a FREE family-friendly celebration of the arts and culture, promoting healthy lifestyles through movement and the arts, and featuring performances and artistic activities by local arts partners. The festival focuses on the need to “Get Active, Get Creative, Get Involved.”
BMD is proud to partner with over 20 different arts organizations from the Metro DC area to provide an afternoon of exciting performances and activities. With this family festival, BMD endeavors to build a deeper sense of community and create accessible opportunities for the public to engage in arts activities. Participating arts partners will offer performances, demonstrations, and activities for children ranging from toddlers to teens and adults.
BMD and the arts partners will present twenty live performances on two stages inspired by the festival theme, “Evolution of the Arts.” There will be fifteen interactive activity sessions to choose from in five spaces, featuring offerings in dance fitness, acapella, physical theatre, storytelling, theatre games, and world dance – a chance for the whole family to experience dance, music, theater, and more! Throughout the festival there will be arts and crafts, information about the cultural and fitness offerings in the Arlington community, and two food trucks – The Big Cheese and Fava Pot.
The festival culminates with an energetic performance by Arlington’s own Bowen McCauley Dance professional company, and with special performances by the participants in BMD’s Dance for PD program for people with Parkinson’s Disease, BMD’s Kenmore Junior Company and students from Marshall Road Elementary School Residency.
This festival is made possible by our many sponsors, including the Washington Forrest Foundation, Dominion Foundation, Arlington Community Foundation, Kenmore PTA, Ballston Bid, Perfect Pointe Dance Studio, and Bean, Kinney & Korman, PC.
