This week we go back to June, 2014 for an RFC MINI SHOW starring Jenna Brooke Swanson that was actually recorded a year earlier.

For this show we dove back into our vaults for some Bellydancing by Jenna Brooke Swanson. The idea was to promote the then-upcoming FestivAll, where Jenna was returning for another incredible performance.

It’s all a bit bittersweet at the moment because it is increasingly doubtful that FestivAll will happen this year due to the stay-at-home orders and the Coronavirus crisis. While the organizers have not officially pulled the plug, and are keeping up a brave face with a page of suggestions of ways to inject art into our quarantined lives, many of the related events (Wine & Jazz Music Festival,  The Charleston Light Opera Guild productions and “Three Things”) have been canceled or postponed, and FestivAll does not seem likely to happen in June, if at all this year.

You can keep up with the latest information, plus a wealth of posts that support other arts organizations by checking out the FestivAll Facebook Page.

Meawhile, we can look forward to better times once this mess is all over by looking at the past, when the sounds of art, music, dance and theater turned Charleston into a work of art, as they will once again.
