We had the honor of hosting Dance Camp at Rosewood this week! There was about 17 participants that put all their hard work and energy towards their routine. The theme of the camp was minions and as you can see the yellow shirts and thick black glasses. They performed there three jazz routines today for family and friends and did such an amazing job. Its great to see youth in the space doing something empowering. Take a look at these pictures from the event!
Thursday, August 6th, over 700 people gathered for National Night Out! It was an awesome celebration in the Rosewood community! Our neighbors enjoyed free BBQ, live music, dancers, a vibrant community market with over 50 vendors, and even a singing contest! It was Rosewood’s largest event to date, and we hope it’s even bigger next year!
