Spring is here! Join us for Wissahickon Reunion, Sunday April 15!

The Spring performance of Wissahickon Reunion will take place Sunday April 15 at 10:30 AM. Joining me for this performance are dancers: Beau Hancock, Jumatatu Poe, Olive Prince, and Marion Ramírez; and acclaimed musician Harold S. Smith.

Come out and enjoy the beauty of Spring in Wissahickon Valley Park! It's a short hike to the site from the Valley Green parking lots so wear comfortable shoes with grip and give yourself plenty of time to get there.

We perform rain or shine—cancellations only in extreme weather Audiences are advised to come prepared: check the weather, layer your clothing--the temperature in the park is usually cooler than in the city. Wear a hat and sunglasses on sunny days. Bring water. And of course check this blog for last minute updates.
