This summer our club provided a $500 Scholarship to The Arts Integration and Multiple Intelligences Project at St. Joseph College in West Hartford to fund one student's participation in their cooperative program with The National Dance Institute (NDI).  NDI is a program founded and maintained by Kennedy Center Honors/Academy Award/Emmy Award -winning dancer and choreographer Jacques d'Amboise. The program,  offered to Middle School  children from all around central Connecticut, affords the opportunity to interact together, alongside both Dance and Education students from St. Joseph College and a cadre of professional artists, in an intense 13 day experience culminating in two capacity-crowd performances at the Hoffman Auditorium of St. Joseph College.
This year's project was a Latin-themed dance and music extravaganza entitled Viva Mexico!  As the photo attests, it was a lively and colorful theatrical event.
The individual recipient of our club's scholarship was Christian Gutierrez of Hartford....a featured player in Viva Mexico!...appearing as the revolutionary visual artist Diego Rivera, upon whose works the dance production was based.  (Christian is shown with his family on the day of the performances.) 
Congratulations to everyone involved!
