Using the Power of Art to Unite and Strengthen Community


ShaLeigh Dance Works performed this past Saturday, April 21st, at the Intersection Stage at Plaza Midwood.

We were honored to perform in this year’s Charlotte’s BOOM Festival, an annual artist-led showcase of contemporary and experimental performance and visual art created on the fringes of popular culture. The event was three days long, but the spirit behind it is more than a weekend experience. BOOM is a movement, born from a belief in the explosive power of art to unite and strengthen our community. Their mission is to spark creativity and collaboration among a diverse group of artists, performers and audiences. To deliver on that mission, they have gathered a unique coalition of artists, volunteers, nonprofits, businesses and neighborhood organizations who come together to transform the way art and culture are created and shared in the Queen City.

We were absolutely honored to perform with Janie Desmond and Micaiah Okonkwo for Reality Ministries’ 2018 Talent Show at DPAC! This extraordinary community event featured performers of ALL abilities and moved us to our core! The talent show is an annual evening that highlights the wonderful talents and unique gifts of our diverse community. Incredible artwork was on display in the lobby and the stage shined with a wonderful variety of numerous performances spanning the full spectrum of performing arts.
