What happens when tap dancers start sharing their personal stories while tap dancing to popular music? You grab the attention of students from grades 5-12, and can capitalize on that opportunity to have an open discussion of the challenging topic of bullying and intimidation. Come Together does just that. Featuring the true stories of Cats Paying Dues company along with emotional dancing and popular music, Come Together opens the doors for the deeper discussions necessary to try to heal the generations currently grappling with these issues.
