Love to dance? Have you always wanted to learn to dance like you see on TV? Or do you just find yourself swaying your hips when you hear a Latin beat? If so, join us at Dance for a Cause, the annual dance series to benefit The Prison Birth Project and AFWM. The fun continues this Friday, August 9! Dance lessons by event coordinators Michael Rodriguez and Erica Silber, and other area dance professionals will be held each Friday from 7-11pm at Eastworks in Easthampton. Admission is $10, and all proceeds will benefit the Prison Birth Project. The series will culminate in an event to be held on August 29th to benefit AFWM, which will include raffles, door prizes, and guest dancers to assist participants of all skill levels.
