Operation Viral

Dominican Yorks are capable of incredible things. On the ten-year anniversary of 9/11, a ballroom dance group honored the city of New York with a new rendition of America, The Beautiful. Karina Pasian, a Grammy-nominated artist along with Tuesday’s Children, an organization that provides support and services for the children of 9/11 victims, and Ballroom Basix, a Harlem-based arts charity for children came together as a flash mob that premiered at Union Square this past Sunday. Kids from the inner city arts-in-education program were accompanied by the ballroom dance couples Gemma Arnold & Mechyslav Pavlyuk and Yuliya Blagova & Yuriy Nartov. Lets make this wonderful demonstration of New York resilience and talent go viral!
