Festival encourages people to move for health

April 4, 2014 by  

The 5th annual Move Me Festival is returning to Arlington in a few weeks. A presentation of Bowen McCauley Dance, the event is expected to attract approximately 1,000 visitors.

The hosts of this year’s festival are Senator Barbara Favola and Delegate Patrick Hope. The event is a celebration of arts and culture from all over the world, and it promotes living a healthier lifestyle through the arts and movement.

Among those performing this year are members of the Dance with PD Program (Parkinson’s disease), the Kenmore Junior Company, and students from Marshall Elementary School. Performances will consist of dance, music, theater, and arts and crafts. There will also be Zumba, improv games, folk dances, a ballet party, “singing and strings”, Bollywood-style dancing, Hula, and the costume museum. Food trucks will also be on hand. There should definitely be something that will appeal to everyone, regardless of their age or fitness level.

Arlington print companies are often asked to help advertise events like this festival. This may involve the printing of posters and flyers, which can then be distributed to all of those in the community who may be interested.

The Move Me Festival is taking place on April 26 from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Admission is free. To find out more about this event, call Bowen McCauley Dance at 703-910-5175.
