Spring 2022: The Art of Ringing

Join the Back Bay Ringers in a celebration of all things dance!  From the waltz to the frug, from Hungary to Broadway, this music will take you on a journey that will leave you tapping your toes.  Donations will be collected to benefit Urbanity Dance, a Boston area non-profit which exists “to inspire, engage, and empower individuals and communities through the art of dance and movement.”
