Letter to the Editor: Rhythmix and Perforce partner on program

Audrey Lord-Hausman

Dear Editor:

Rhythmix Cultural Works (RCW) and Perforce Software partnered with AUSD to provide free cultural arts programming to approximately 1000 Alameda elementary students over the past months. Through RCW's Island Arts Concert & Workshop Series, students were introduced to music and dance from Cuba, Brazil and West Africa. This Performance Arts & Learning Program is free and students and their teachers learned about each country, the language, and danced, clapped, and sang with the artists.

The theatre was alive with the squealing and excitement of the kids and they couldn't wait to ask questions and learn more.

Alameda is fortunate to have Rhythmix Cultural Works as a community arts resource and it hopes to continue this program with additional sponsors. For more information to become a sponsor: info@rhythmix.org.

A warm thank you to Perforce Software for jump-starting this exciting PAL program.

Audrey Lord-Hausman
