“You are cordially invited to the Dance On The Street Music and Art Fest aka D.O.T.S. Fest. The City of Reading Signature event on September 15, 2018 Reading PA. RIZE and community partners are coming together for our 5th year in celebration of Afro-Latino Heritage Month . Our host for this years event is the Grill then Chill Lounge located at 400 Woodward St, Reading, PA 19601.

RIZE is a youth arts non-profit organization that fosters the arts to create awareness of social adversity and youth mental health. The primary goal for this event is to support the RIZE Programs and to eliminate the social adversity by uniting our cultures as one through performing arts as well as promoting Dance as a fitness tool to promote a healthy lifestyle. Our vision and goal is to give our community the avenue to express themselves artistically, and to provide positive reinforcement to the community at-large. An opportunity for tourism into the city and increase business revenue. Our mission is to unite our culturally diverse communities by providing a positive venue where individuals of all ages and backgrounds can come together to celebrate in dance and the arts.”
