Dancing Grounds annual Dance for Social Change Festival kicks off this week, virtually via ZOOM. It will focus on issues of gentrification and COVID-19 in New Orleans, featuring a panel discussion with local leaders, dance classes and a film premiere of an original performance piece by its teen dancers. We talk with Dancing Grounds youth programs manager, Randall Rosenberg.
The festival runs May 25th thru 29th. All events are free, but you must pre-register at dancingrounds.org for a link to the activities.
