The Unicity Festival Partners with the VH1 Save the Music Foundation

This year’s Unicity Performing Arts Festival, held in Salisbury, Maryland, is proud to announce its partnership with the VH1 Save the Music Foundation.

This year The Unicity Performing Arts Festival will feature two unique events in an effort to raise money for the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. The festival which is known for its avid promotion of music and arts will be hosting a Flash Mob on Friday night and a Dancing under the Stars Event on Saturday night.

The Unicity Flash Mob will consist of people who have pre-learned a dance that thousands of people will perform in synch. The dance is easy enough for anyone to do and does not require previous dance experience. People who register receive a secret link that takes them to access the video. The cost to participate in the Flash Mob is five dollars and all of the proceeds go to VH1 Save the Music. “We want to make this the biggest Flash Mob that has ever taken place on the East Coast, Says festival producer, Michel Grey.

The Dancing under the Stars event will also feature the eighteen piece big band from the University of Delaware performing various Swing, Latin and other big band sounds while dancers show off their dance moves. “Dancing Under the Stars is a cross-generational event that raises money for a great cause” says Fred Munzert producer of the event. All Participants will be given access to the set list pre-show to allow them to prepare and a local dance studio will be teaching dances during the event. Both events are being filmed.

The VH1 Save The Music Foundation was founded in 1997 as a public affairs initiative of the VH1 network. The Foundation’s core mission is to restore instrumental music education programs, ensuring that every child has access to a complete education that includes the benefits of music instruction. “We are excited to be partnering with Unicity for this great event that will raise money to restore instrumental music education in our public schools,” said Paul Cothran, Executive Director of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

The Dancing under the Stars event takes place at the Celebrity stage on September 25th at 8:30PM.
