Who We Are

We are a group of retirement pioneers: researching, educating and creating possibilities for community living centered upon dance, music, creativity and friendship.

We are musicians, dancers, artists and just plain appreciators of all kinds of acoustic music, participatory dance, and the creative arts in general.

We are a vibrant community, young and old, from many walks of life, who have bonds of friendship and caring that go beyond the events that bring us together to play and to create.

We are incorporated as a 501(c)3 educational non-profit as we explore possibilities and raise funds to design a model Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). At the end of the design process, we will share our model with others and then re-incorporate as a business in order to build our community
