Outreach Opportunities

Circle Modern Dance loves to participate in outreach opportunities.  The month of August we had great experiences visiting with both UT-Knoxville’s Child & Family Studies program to talk about the creative spirit and Tribe One’s Safe Place Celebration. We can’t wait to return to the Behavioral Health Awareness Day on Market Square 10/5/12. If you would like us to visit your group or organization please inquire through e-mail.
