January 30 | Phoenix Rising Dance Company's Imagination Station

Imagination Station is an interactive presentation ideal for introducing the art of dance to children, their parents and grandparents. Join Phoenix Rising Dance Company dancers on a trip to a magical world created by dancing children. Unfortunately, all the children have grown up and forgotten how to dance! Since the magical world needs dancing to remain magical, we’ll use our imaginations to create the sun, wind, rain, flowers, trees, and animals.

Instruments will be provided, but you are also encouraged to bring your own to join in the jamboree.
