Evening of storytelling and dancing set for Aug. 31 at White Clay Creek State Park

NEWARK – The staff at White Clay Creek State Park invites the public to a very special extension of their free Wednesday Night Concert series. Starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31, visitors will enjoy songs and interactive storytelling followed by interactive dancing at the park’s Carpenter Recreation Area, 880 New London Road, Newark DE, 19711. The programs are free; however, state park entry fees will be in effect.

Starting the evening will be Oni Lasana as Mama Earth. Lasana is an advocate for storytelling, Arts-in-Education and community theater, and is dedicated to coaching and collaborating youth and adults. She will share stories and songs of nature for families.

At 7 p.m., University of Delaware’s premier Bollywood-fusion dance team, Delaware Kamaal Dancers, will bring various styles of dance to the park. This nationally ranked group will perform and interacts with the audience by instructing them in the dance.

Delaware State Parks is able to offer these free, family-friendly programs thanks in part by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division of Parks & Recreation promotes Delaware arts events on DelawareScene.com.
