“The Radical Spirit Dance Collective, created and Directed by Patricia Carter-Bridges, brings a fresh, new and impactful way of dance expression that combines the relevancy of Spiritually driven spoken word with the Authentic movement of the heart.” Said Patricia Carter-Bridges from The Radical Spirit Dance Collective.

This is our sixth year partnering with Buggé Ballet and we feel so fortunate for this partnership and for the opportunity to support the arts. The festival is a great way to bring the community to the museum grounds and enjoy an afternoon of dance.” said Rachael Goldberg, Executive of Liberty Hall.
