Jai Mason performed in the 2017 Liberty Hall Dance Festival. Mason commented, "To say performing at Liberty Hall Dance Festival was a pleasure does not capture the wonders that the performers and visitors experienced during this amazing day of art and history. There was a sense of community and of art awareness and education, all done with the mutual core love of dance. I cannot wait to see where the dance festival goes from here."
Liberty Hall Dance Festival is made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Liberty Hall Dance Festival is also supported, in part, by a UNITY Dance Organization Community Grant sponsored by Curtain Call. Local business sponsors are Spire Group CPA and the Tropicana Diner.
