EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S CORNER
Dear Friends –
Dear Friends – This Spring has been very exciting for Circuit Productions, Inc. (CPI). Special thanks goes out to Council Members Laurie Cumbo (35th CD) and David Greenfield (44th CD) for generously funding CPI’s cultural programming by seniors for seniors. In the 35th CD we received the Healthy Aging Initiative (HAI) and in the 44th - NYC Support for Seniors (S4S).
In CM Cumbo’s district seniors at three centers – Walt Whitman, Ebbets Field and Grace Agard Center (part of the Fort Greene Council) enjoyed “dance parties” featuring legendary artists from the Harlem Blues & Jazz Band and Orlando Marin – The Last Mambo King. What better way to keep yourself “heart” healthy than dancing!
The 44th CD will enjoy a variety of programming in Jewish, Asian and Polynesian arts. Look for May postings.
Bring that heart rate up and enjoy Circuit Productions’ free performances and workshops. Visit us at www.circuitproductions.org as new events are posted monthly.
Swing to the beat until we meet!
Susan Susan Goldbetter,
Founder, Executive Director
Feedback from the field
from tap dancer Max Pollak after a recent show at PS 770K in Brooklyn:
What a great experience all around!
The teachers were really friendly, helpful and efficient! The students were incredibly well behaved, highly energetic and enthusiastic about participating. Even the security guard was really nice and very interested in the performance! She told me she could only listen from her desk outside the auditorium but loved listening and grooving to it.
As performers my percussionist and I had a ball performing for everyone. Some of the students approached me afterwards to express how much they enjoyed the show. A few of them said they also had European parents!
Looking forward to a return engagement!
