Tapestry Folkdance Center needed a new website to draw in new dancers that was easy for staff to update and maintain. This new site built on WordPress with a child theme is helping bring in a younger crowd of dancers by being easy to read on any device and being attractive and colorful with photos and videos of the dances and an updated color logo. Now Tapestry has the tools to attract new dancers so they can be ready for the next 30 years. Happy Dancing!
