Ian, one of the elementary school students from our "Dance Around the World" program, is planning a dinner to raise funds for his church's world hunger program and the local food cupboard.
Sharon Magnuson, Associate Director of ECLA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in American) World Hunger and Disaster Appeal will make an educational presentation about hunger in various countries around the world. Our dinner will be food from those countries. And Ian has invited me to teach a dance from each of the countries.
The dances we'll do are:
Moons and Stars Circle - United States
Zemer Atik - Israel
Syp Simeon - Russia
Chilili - Boliva
Bele Kawe - west Africa
Waves - Hong Kong
I'm honored to be part of this event that will raise awareness and funds to help with hunger at home and elsewhere. I'm impressed with Ian for developing this idea and event; looking forward to helping dance away hunger. Friday, July 18 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church 1290 Thompson Road Coos Bay, OR. Dinner is at 5:30 - education and dance at 6:30.
