Lay out a blanket or chair as the Monarch Kaleidoscope Team finishes their inaugural season with a community performance at Last Fridays!

This group of young dancers is bound in their goal to better themselves, raise each other up, bring joy to their community, and explore artistry through dance.

"We are thrilled to cap off our season with a commitment to our goal of bringing art and joy into the community we love and call home."

 

They'll be performing on the grass on the south side of the courthouse at 6:30 PM for an hour of modern, jazz, tap, contemporary, and musical theater styles, finishing with inviting the community to join us in a few social dances!

ROAMING POETS

POETRY "PROSE" SHOWCASE
Hosted by William Davis

Untitled design (5).png

Each month, Last Friday's Poetry "Prose" Showcase features a variety of inspired poets and spoken word artists.

 

This showcase stops at 2-3 venues throughout the night to share words and heart with the community.

 

The goal is not only to provide a platform for established poets to share their art so we can all revel in the power of language to paint, electrify, and bridge worlds, but also to empower new poets, still fostering the courage to exercise their voice and power to heal with self-expression, in continuing to nurture their craft!

FEATURED POETS:

Schedule Coming Soon!

Along with host, William (Endlesswill) Davis, Father, Teacher, Author, Owner/Operator of Writers Block Publishing, and Hillsborough's 2016-2018 Poet Laureate.

Poet Announcements Coming Soon!
