Rhythm Of The Dance
At Civic Hall Richmond IN. March 17, 2012. This two-hour dance and music extravaganza contains a wealth of talent derived from all areas of Irish life, including three tenorsand a full cast of dancers. The show is an inspiring epic, reliving the journey of the Irish Celts throughout history. Using the traditional and modern arts of dance (ballet, modern dance, jazz) and music, this richly costumed show marries the contemporary and the ancient. Combining traditional Irish dance and music with the most up to date stage execution, the show is a thousand year old story presented as a modern day stage show. Don’t miss this wonderful evening of song and dance at Civic Hall on St. Patrick’s Day!

As soon as the DJ started the music, people of all ages were up and dancing with bright smiles. It was the beginning of a great night for everyone.
Michelle Satterfield of the Independent Living Center shared, “We really had a very good time. Thank you so much to everyone that attended.” The dance was a major culminating event to celebrate Disability Awareness Month.
Later in the evening many people joined in enthusiastically with Karaoke, belting out songs that meant a lot to them. Some in groups and others singing solo–all were excited to participate even if it was their first time.
Earlham Student volunteers helped with serving food, entertaining guests, checking coats and all sorts of other things to make the evening go smoothly. Many thanks must be given to them for all their hard work and enthusiasm.
Jennie, who was the winner of the GoWayneCounty.com gift bag which included a bear from the Wayne County Tourism Bureau, had a wonderful time dancing in her new dress. Her mother, Susan Kuhens, wrote later that “It was an absolutely awesome night for everyone.”
Many other wonderful businesses donated door prizes including: Reid Hospital, Readmore etc., Starbucks, RiverRats, Cosmotique, Warm Glow Candles, Medfit, Fecher’s Panache, Showroom Details, and the Independent Living Center of Eastern Indiana. Financial contributions were made as well and the list of the generous businesses can be seen at the ILC Facebook site, along with pictures from the dance.
Joe’s Pizza, Mercurios, and Chipotle
Some of the food was donated by Joe’s Pizza, Mercurios, and Chipotle, while the rest was prepared by the RHS cafeteria. (thanks to Maggie for help with coordinating food and Andy with set up and tear down and everything in between-and RHS for donating the Space).
Three beautiful cakes were made and donated by Beth Makovic from “Carpe Diem Cakes,” including one with a rainbow and children, another with flowers and one filled in the center with fresh strawberries. Of course, they were a big hit.
There were also high school volunteers from RHS, under the direction of Chris Lopresti, who came in the night before and transformed the cafeteria into a “dreamy” venue. The room was decorated with stars, trees lit with tiny white lights and a beautiful sign at the entry welcoming all to the dance.
Mayor Sally Hutton arrived a bit later, after attending two other community engagements, to thank everyone who organized the Dream Keepers Dance. This first annual dance was brought to the community by the partnership of the Independent Living Center, Wayne County Minority Health Coalition, Richmond High School, and the Human Rights Commission of Richmond.

“Is my first duty to myself and my family, or should I consider the entire younger generation as being ‘all my sons’?”
