Well, yet another wonderful show by Fenix Drum and Dance Company has come and gone. This past Friday and Saturday nights we had full houses for the Firebirds. We followed the show with a samba line into the Artisan Theater's art gallery where everyone - dancers, drummers, and audience - shook their booties to the rhythms! It was great!!!
