The Creative Alliance held their 12th Annual Viva Brasil Mid-Winter Concert Carnival Dance Party on Feb. 29. Amtchat Edwards taught the crowd how to dance to forro - a style of music that originated in the north eastern region of Brazil. JP Silva flew in from Rio de Janeiro to fill the room with authentic forro and samba tunes. Nation Beat, along with Rose Morales, closed the event with an electrifying performance of funk, brass and forro. The featured artwork was exhibited in the upper gallery of the venue displaying original, Black history themed artistry created entirely by the students of the Creative Alliance.
