Simple, High-Quality & Joyful Study of Dance

Wine Stroll Time

The students of Movement Arts Atlanta (MAA) will perform as a part of the Inman Park Wine Stroll. This fundraising event for the Inman Park Neighborhood Association’s Security Patrol will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm. There will be 14 porches serving wine, lots of live music, a food truck court and a bit of dance. Tickets are $50 and are available here. Stroll, sip and enjoy the beauty of live performance among the homes and buildings of Atlanta’s most iconic historic neighborhood.

MAA’s students will be performing excepts from the 2022 Annual Student Recital, Blackberry Ball. There will also be a opportunity for the audience to join in the dancing. The dance performances will take place at 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, and 3:00 pm in front of Inman Park Church, 1015 Edgewood Avenue. Performances during the event are free and open to the public and may be attended without a wine stroll ticket.

The wine stroll is a fundraiser and is run 100% by volunteers. Volunteering for big events like the wine stroll is a fun way to connect with neighbors and new friends. If you would like to volunteer, here is a link to the sign up. Fundraising is always more fun with friends, new and old!


Wine Stroll Fun!

Thank you to the students and their families that supported Movement Arts Atlanta participating in the Inman Park Wine Stroll on Saturday, October 23, 2021. The afternoon included five performances with ballet selections, a modern dance and an audience participation section called Dance-A-Long.

The younger students looked lovely in their dark green tutus and ended each show in leggings with a silly accessory. The middle section, a modern phrase performed twice with different music, was performed by a trio of two adults, including Director Carolyn Stine McLaughlin, and a student age ten. Grandparents, neighbors and wine stroll guests enjoyed putting on the colorful costume pieces (hats, scarves and tutus) and joining in the dancing.

MAA thanks the Inman Park Wine Stroll committee for the opportunity to participate in the Inman Park Neighborhood Association fundraiser. Thank you to the Garland Condominium and our onsite contact Shawn Lingle for such a lovely place to dance. A special thanks to Wine Stroll Committee members Karen Heim, Ro Lawson, Sally Dorn and Eric Goldberg.
