After a recent successful presentation on Arts in Public Schools at TEDxMidAtlantic, where ClancyWorks collaborated with the students of Stedwick Elementary, Clancy continues her focus on community leadership through arts education in 2017/2018. Clancy’s overall message is that dance can be a means of building bridges within a diverse community, connecting people across generations, socio-economic circumstances, and between public and private sector businesses and nonprofits, in order to support community development. This event is part of a series of concerts, workshops and networking events that will be presented by ClancyWorks in the Greater Wheaton area throughout the Spring of 2018. This kickoff Spring event – a free dance concert on May 19th, 2018 at 3 p.m. at the Crossway Community Inc. – will allow for several partnering organizations to come together in support of ClancyWorks community engagement programs in the region. This concert highlights the ClancyWorks Dance Company Members alongside the students in the ClancyWorks ASPIRE Dance Program. ASPIRE students participated in an after-school residency that was part of the Excel Beyond the Bell (EBB) program. The EBB program, sponsored by the Collaboration Council and the Montgomery County Department of Recreation, supports learning outside of the classroom and builds the student’s self-confidence.
