Can we get a show of jazz hands?

Dancing in the Park set Saturday

July 30, 2010

It was a huge coincidence that worked out perfectly.
Kayla Gilmore of KMG Creations Dance and Fitness, LLC, had planned Saturday’s “Dancing in the Park with the “main objective is to expose different genres of dance, promote the arts and promote fitness for everyone.”
“I thought I would do something to help Mississippi with a crisis of unhealthy and obese people, especially with youth,” Gilmore said. “I am trying so hard to alert people about healthy living because it could combat many diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and others.”

July 29, 2010
