 Our organization agape, and the activities, events, and services offered began with the Union Square Drum & Dance Circle on Friday nights, attracting hundreds of drummers & dancers over the years. We then performed with the ALMA events, Seaport Summer Series, & DJ Jellybean Benitez and the Union Square Ballroom. Many years later, we partner now with the annual N.Y.
