Life Is Beautiful-A Celebration of Song, Dance, and Movement
We had a successful kickoff to Parkinson's Awareness Month on Saturday, April 1st at Cannon Dance Studio in Cedar Rapids! Thank you to all who participated either as performers or audience members on Saturday afternoon. We are so proud of those who showcased their talent on stage and proud of the support that showed up to witness. We are hoping to make this an annual event, so keep your dancing shoes dusted off, your voices strong, and your body moving!
