The name stands for what Lewis and her fellow group members are trying to do in their community: to Reach, Inspire, Connect, Overcome, Create, Help, Empower, and Transform the lives of those watching their performances.  

“And we do that with the use of dance artistry and creative expressions,” said Lewis.  

The group has performed at events across Maryland and other parts of the country for the last 8 years including at Artscape and Light City. 

This weekend at the JCC Block Party, which is sponsored by WJZ, Angelia’s son, Isaiah and another member, Jordan, will be dancing to four songs and teaching attendees how to dance along to one of them, called “Jump” by Uri Davidi.
