Os Forrozeiros Brazilian/Forró dance and music
Friday, July 27th, 2018, 6:00pm, with food service by Peabody Steakhouse
The Os Forrozeiros organization has existed for over 10 years, but the Forrozeiros Dance Group has been together for the past 2 years. We practice at the Deborah Mason School of Dance Studio in Somerville and our main goals are to spread our love of Forró, help others get to know more about our culture and its richness through dance, and help needy populations by promoting fundraisers and other events beneficial to the community.
Tonight’s non-profit organization
In the spirit of giving back to the community each concert is partnered with a Cape Ann non-profit organization. The public is invited to make a free-will donation (So if you can, please bring cash/check.) This week's organization is Wellspring House.
