New York City Night Out!

March 29, 2012


Last night, the Just Peace Summit had our New York City Night Out!

Last night, the Just Peace Summit had our New York City Night Out! The workshops are so intense that we always treat the teens to a night out. For the last few years we've been using the legendary Bitter End night club. I sincerely thank everybody who played any part in the event from the bottom of my heart.

Last night's program included improvisational theater, freestyle dancing, beat-boxing, freestyle rap/singing/spoken word, IMPACT Repertory Theatre, and an open performance combining all disciplines to my song "We Are Family" as the finale. It was an amazing New York City Night Out!

BTW, my father jumped out the window of the building on the left when I was a child - That was a long time ago on an NYC day out
