About last night
In case you happened to drive past Alameda High School this past Sunday and were wondering what was the deal with the rather, er, audible music thumping off the steps of Kofman Auditorium: It was part of a benefit for educational programs for kids overseas.
Looks like the folks from Soulciety, an East Bay nonprofit that supports youths, were hosting performances to benefit their Bridge program, which provides educational and arts workshops to underprivileged kids overseas.
The shows included performances from A.S.I.I.D. Dance Company, dancers from Detroit, and Supreme Soul (Warning: Some of the music played on the page features foul language), a San Francisco freestyle dance outfit best known as competitors in the second season of “America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV (and given my advanced age, all I can say about that is ’50s outfits, ’80s glasses and ’90s backward ballcaps).
The program is one of a host of health, educational and arts programs run to “empower” youths by the folks at Soulciety, an eclectic group that includes creative types, tobacco-awareness educators, fitness trainers and financial advisors.
