From the Streets to the Stage: See the Emmy Award-Winning Documentary and Meet the Star at the Somers Library

4:00 – 6:00 PM

Explore the story of a ballet dancer who overcame tremendous odds to achieve his dreams. FROM THE STREETS TO THE STAGE: THE JOURNEY OF FREDRICK DAVIS presents the powerful life story of Fredrick Davis, who, as a child, overcame poverty and homelessness to make his dreams of becoming a dancer a reality. Fred’s story illustrates both the impact of the arts on the lives of young people and a community’s drive to provide opportunity and support for its most vulnerable citizens. Fred is a world class ballet dancer. He was a premier dancer with the Dance Theater of Harlem, and tours the country dancing with other notable ballet companies. Somers Library will show this documentary, and Fred Davis will be a guest speaker for a Q & A. Register online at www.somerslibrary.org or call 914-232-5717.
