First Thursdays Danceteria
Participants will be exposed to new music and dance traditions. 30-50% of participants will be newly introduced to the library and it's services.
703 people attended the seven events in this series. 215 evaluations were returned at the events, so we were able to find out that 41% of respondents had never been to a library program or event before. Respondents were also asked to rate their familiarity with the style of music & dance at the program (on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being "Not at all" and 5 being "Very Familiar") - 53% chose 1, 2, or 3, so we were able to increase our audience's exposure to unfamiliar music and dance. Response to the programs was overwhelmingly positive, and we were able to draw attendance from over 25 zip codes. The City of Prior Lake has been an exceptional partner and they are very pleased with the events.
