Trolley Singers

What I loved most about The Trolley Dances was that it took us out to Bayview Opera House in Bayview Hunter's Point, an area of the city rarely visited. When we arrived there was a fantastic Obama voter drive with local folks listening to live music and collecting canned goods for less privileged families. The Emcee invited us over to the event and was delighted when we obliged, all 70 of us! We then visited the Opera House which is a hidden treasure. What a fantastic visit.

Bayview Opera House and an Obama Voter Drive surrounds the dancers!

Inside the Opera House we enjoyed Adigun Sipho Capoeira Angola - here two boys display their strength, flexibility and choreography. Fellow members of the Capoeira troupe provided live music.
