Show Reflects Bainbridge Avenue’s Boundless Energy, Excitement and Recognition of the Efforts of Dedicated Staff

Music is a favorite activity at IAHD, and today’s musical program reflected the eclectic interests of our performers. Performances included rousing renditions of “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” (Beatles), Michael Jackson’s hits, “Thriller” and “Beat It,” and “Baby, I Need Your Loving,” (Four Tops). Dances also featured many of Michael Jackson’s hits, but the Latin culture was also represented with an enthusiastic dance to the music of “Dominicano Yo Soy” (Raulin Rosendo), which had the whole audience moving to the beat. Our models displayed their best outfits for different events, modeling everything from tuxedos to formal dresses to vacation attire.  Many of them coordinated and planned their own outfits with staff assistance. The rich heritage of IAHD was well represented in the musical, dance and costumed selections.

The success of the show was greatly facilitated by the Ryer Avenue Residential Manager, Alexandra Contin, Brianna Hopps from the Bainbridge Avenue Pre-Vocational Program and Art Coordinator, Seth Addai. Their efforts helped to engage everyone and create an unforgettable event. A particular highlight of this year’s show was the acknowledgement given to Ms. Philipcia Joseph. The staff recognized Ms. Joseph for the outstanding effort she puts forth on a daily basis, as well as her key role in facilitating special events. Ms. Joseph humbly and graciously accepted flowers and well deserved applause for her continued advocacy and support of IAHD’s individuals.
