Urban Artistry does Class Acts Arts: Fiesta 2012

Live performances, food, and libations to benefit arts education!

On Friday, November 16th, 2012, from 6:30pm – 9:30pm, Class Acts Arts will host their 3rd annual fundraiser at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center(7995 Georgia Ave. Silver Spring, MD).

Class Acts Arts ( is a non-profit organization that brings interactive performances, workshops and residencies representing a broad range of artistic disciplines and cultural traditions to children, youth and families in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia. 

Urban Artistry has long been on the Class Acts Arts roster of artists (, doing shows as far away as Port Republic, MD, and as close as Arlington,VA. By bringing positive and historical representations of urban dance cultures to suburban and rural communities, we keep the histories alive. But sometimes, it is the schools- their students, parents, and teachers that keep us alive and focused.

Urban Artistry Artistic Director and DJ, Russell Campbell noted recently after doing a Class Acts show at Mutual Elementary School, "It makes me feel good to know that kids can walk away from a show feeling like they can move like we do. It reminded me that music and dance are for everyone and sometimes the most timid are the most talented. This is another reason why we push to do more."

When we host cyphers, demonstrations, and question and answer sessions after our own performances, we learn that the youth (and their teachers) are just itching to share their artistic talents. Their movements and the support from their peers in the audience are inspiring.

Come and get down this Friday like the kids do!
