We organized a dancing party in the summer time on 28JUL18. We invited lots of our neighbors to join our dance party. All ladies are requested to wear white dress. We were all have fun in the party. We meet old and new friends and more and more people want to join in our non profit dancing group to practice dance for free every week. We are all excited for the next dancing party in 2019.
