This event enables people to raise money for the Jenesse Center simply by dancing. Award-winning choreographer Laurieann Gibson, chairperson of Dance4Hope, will bring with her a touch of “Boom Kack Greatness,” to this fun-filled, family event which will not only raise awareness of domestic violence, but also provide outreach and education about healthy relationships and introduce Jenesse’s programs and services.
