About “The NJ Dance Network”
“The Dance Network” is a facility that will be located in the heart of Downtown Newark, New Jersey. I, Rah Digga, have obtained a lease for one of SEVERAL abandoned spaces in Newark and with the help of countless community members; we will have the place completely renovated in 30 days. This facility will act as a meeting ground for various talented children/people in the city of Newark, as well as the surrounding areas. The focus will be dance in all of its variations. It is a chance for children that do not attend the one (1) performing arts school (Arts High) in the city to receive some formal training. The goal is to develop full-scale dance recitals, theatrical productions to be performed in our city, and basically act as a stomping ground to deter talented kids from getting into trouble with their idle time.
About “Hood House: So Jersey”
I am releasing a 3-4 song EP entitled Hood House: So Jersey tentatively scheduled for December 2013. I will be releasing a series of videos for the EP to be packaged as a dance DVD, which casts participants of the NJ Dance Network. It is my hope that employing people directly from the community would be a great way to boost morale and offer them a chance to experience pop culture in a positive environment while utilizing his or her natural born talents.
About “Breaking in the Brix”
Breakin’ In the Brix is the current working title for the first stage production I am producing. It is a musical remake of the 1984 classic movie “Breakin” to be performed at any one of Newark’s arts and entertainment venues such as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center or Newark Symphony Hall’s Terrace Ballroom. We are prepping to have it ready by Spring 2014. We will launch another kickstarter for this project sometime around January. I’m currently working on obtaining 501(c)(3) status so that all contributions are tax deductible. Until such time, I’ve been spending my own personal funds to make such a dream of mine come to fruition!
