Wayne Mufasa Jones, Founder/ Artistic Director of Greater Vision Dance Company,  invites everyone to come and enjoy a “Day of Dance” with some great dancers.  “We are excited about the dance community coming together and sharing our artistic gifts under the same roof. Non experienced dancers are welcomed to come and people that love to just be around dance.”

Everyone is asked to make a minimal $5 donation fee for the event to provide youth more access to dance education.  Greater Vision is committed to teaching character, discipline, self-confidence, and responsibility while bringing out talent through DANCE.  In addition, the entire Greater Vision staff works to ensure all youth participants are doing well in academics and provides tutoring..
