WE DID IT!
||The Diosa Recital was a big success! Thanks to the efforts of our performers, volunteers and their loved ones our 3rd ANNUAL FUNDRAISER SHOWCASE was able to raise $1,500 for Voices Against Violence at the show! And the donations are still coming in!
And our neighbors are hearing about it!
The fantastic community newspaper, Framingham Patch attended and wrote up a very positive report including pictures and video from the event. Read The Framingham Patch article here.
Access Framingham TV, the local cable station was also at the event, taking information in for their news report later this week!
To date, donations are approaching $1,700 and counting! With these funds families trapped in domestic violence can have access to emergency care, support groups, legal advice, and relocation service in order to break the cycle of violence and start again. None of this could have happened without the kind-hearted efforts of the wonderful students at Diosa! THANK YOU
NEW CLASS! NEW INSTRUCTOR!
CARDIO HIP HOP CLASS! THURSDAY NIGHTS AT 6:30 we're featuring a new class with, Amanda Albert who brings you a- fun, upbeat, high-paced fitness class where you will work every part of your body while having fun. It is fitness that feels like dance! It starts out with cardio warmups focusing on specific parts of your body and continues to teach you a hip hop routine to your favorite current songs. This class is structured to offer an intense cardiovascular workout in addition to teaching basic Hip Hop movements and technique. It is ideal for students looking to tone muscles, achieve weight loss and/or increase stamina, all while indulging in a fun-filled dance activity that avoids the monotony of traditional cardio training. Amanda is a student of Communications at UMass Amherst and has been dancing for the past 17 years. She studied ballet, jazz, tap, pointe, and hip hop at Annemarie's Dance Centre in Ashland and is currently on the Stage Crew Dance Team at U Mass where she has choreographed two dances the group performed at local showcases. She is excited to join Diosa and bring her love of fitness and dance to others. Check out her last set of students on the video clip on the side bar -->
MAUREEN MCANULTY! is an experienced dance instructor who began her own instruction at a young age with the Dancing Arts Center in the very dance studio where Diosa now resides today! And that was just the beginning. Her dedication to her craft took her to New York where she had the opportunity to attend classes at the Broadway Dance Center, The Ailey School and the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance. She has performed in numerous productions of musicals in and around Boston including Cats and Grease and has studied at well-known Boston schools of dance including The Dance Complex and The Jeannette Neil Dance Studio. She has also trained in classical ballet with Silvia Silverman and Edra Toth of the Boston Ballet and Jonathan Towle and Liz Lapuh of the Cambridge Chamber Ballet. Finally, as a certified yoga instructor, Maureen can bring together many disciplines to integrate the spirit and mind into practice.
