This event hopes to facilitate community engagement with Wailuku through the evocative art of dance, to set up the potential for tangible connections through a unique experience, and to give both dance and Wailuku Town the chance to be redefined in the eyes of the general public: to be seen as accessible, approachable, and engaging. This is an outdoor, all-ages event that will take place on Tuesday, November 23rd from 4:00-6:00p.
