‘Dance for Change’ on the Gridiron

On Saturday, May 2, hundreds of junior high and high school students will convene on the gridiron of the College Football Hall of Fame and dance to live music, participate in sports clinics and learn the Evolution of Hip-Hop, all to raise awareness of teens and young adults living in poverty. Dance for Change is a collaborative effort between the Center for the Homeless and Five Star.


Some specifics:
