If a regular picture is worth a thousand words than a picture of a dance is worth a thousand steps! People thinking about coming to dance at Tapestry but don't know what to expect are highly influenced by the visual information on the website, Facebook/Twitter pages and in our email newsletter. We want to communicate what a fun place Tapestry is with lots of different dance forms and communities. The best way to grab their attention is to show Tapestry from a dancers point of view. So that's where you come in.
Tapestry is holding a photo contest this month of December to bring in photos showcasing dances at Tapestry from YOUR point of view.
