Atumpan African Dance is their first trophy! One of our dance moms invited us to participate in a talent/step show at a local Boys and Girls Club where the theme was Stomping Out Suicide. There was standing room only to raise awareness and support for suicide prevention. Not only did we see some of Hampton Roads finest step teams, we also had one of our most enthusiastic audiences yet.
The folks there contributed funds to the cause and they contributed the loudest cheers for us ever. Wow!

We had a host of dancers from our Atumpan African Dance group to help start the party off right, plus interactive games with our audience. In addition to our onstage fun, we were able to debut our signature corn-hole boards, while the face painter dubbed cute little children with either our company logo, our CD cover art, or a picture of their choosing. Mancala was a popular game, aside from the food. No mistake, I meant food, 'cause everything was delish.
Our junior dancers paraded in the senior (and senior citizen) dancers with some great energy. If you look over to the far left of the picture, you'll notice the baby dancer hanging out in an idle sort of way. Baby dancers can be that way.
