Fluid Movement is a Baltimore-based performance art group that juxtaposes complex subject matter with delightful and unexpected mediums. We create art that is accessible, and often educational, for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Our performances are created for urban spaces, in Baltimore and beyond. We encourage a sincere understanding and appreciation for city life and city dwellers through our work!
Spring Fling is our school's biggest event of the year. It's a day of family fun with games, food, face painting, music, bounce houses and crafts. It's also our biggest annual fundraiser. Last year we raised $8,500 for our school that went towards air conditioners, arts enrichment and classroom technology.
BUT, we barely pulled it off! We really need more parent volunteers for this year’s event. We're asking for 2 hours of your time so our school community can have a fantastic day and raise money too!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 29th from 10:00 to 3:00! Please sign up below for the time(s) you are available and what part of the event you'd like to volunteer for.
