Want to know more about Cathy’s Dance?

….read on. As people ask more questions, we’ll add the answers! Q. Why dancing in the dark? A. We wanted to share the fun of it….it’s unexpected…it’s invisible …it’s freeing …it makes you smile… We wanted to share the experience – the experience that Cathy enjoyed – it made sense for it to be Cathys dance! Q. Where did the concept of Dancing in the Dark come from? A. We’re all the same with the lights out – barriers disappear – we’re free to be what/who ever we are – no judgments. You can read about how we dreamed it up, right here. Q. How’s it all going to run on the night? A.
