March 7, 2024: HeartSong:  Capital One Hall Vault.  Helping Hearts Dance performed heart warming, uplifting dance and the program included singer/songwriter Rebecca Berlin and live musicians from the Minh Vo Jazz Trio.  Lincolnia senior tappers performed "Tea for Two" taught to them by HHA dancers Sue Skaddan and Kathy Bova.  This program was funded in part by ArtsFairfax through a ticket subsidy grant and the house was almost sold out!  See these Chip McCrea Photography pictures and video:



To INSPIRE lifelong movement and foster a love of the arts through programs featuring innovative, uplifting choreography and live musical performances; as well as providing movement activities to seniors in the washington Metropolitan area.​​​​
