Thank you for such a wonderful event (United We Dance). I attended the school peformance as a chaperone, and attended again on Saturday evening because I enjoyed it so much. Each dance was exquisitely performed and I enjoyed each presentation. Thank you for all the hard work that went into such a magnificent celebration of cultures and community.

I wanted to let ABA know that the dance show we saw last week was spectacular! My daughter and I loved every minute of the show! Thank you for bringing such a high quality show to Alameda. I would expect nothing less with Ms. Abra's involvement.
