Enjoy an artful experience with dance, music, and visual art!

Kern Dance Alliance and the Bakersfield Angels are excited to announce Dancing with the Angels, a family affair focused on using the arts to connect our foster care community through movement, music, and visual art.

About Dancing with the Angels

On Saturday, April 9 at Garces Memorial High School, Dancing with the Angels will feature dance classes taught by Kern County dance educators from the Bakersfield City Ballet, Bakersfield Line Dancers, and DAT Krew. Additionally, the Playful Space will provide hands-on visual art experiences, and a music education class will offer an introduction to a variety of instruments.

Dancing with the Angels is an opportunity for foster families and youth to enjoy an artful experience rooted in connecting parents/guardians with their children. Dancing with the Angels will foster creativity and self-expression, promote trust and communication, build confidence and teamwork, and will offer a day where achievements are celebrated and memories are made through a valued community experience.
