FODBall Productions

We’re making summer even brighter with a side-splitting lineup of “FODball” comedians—or those who are typically the ‘first, only, or different’ in a comedy lineup. Co-founded and produced by Amma Marfo (Rhode Island’s Rogue Island Comedy Festival, NYC’s Black Women in Comedy Laff Fest) Ariana Seymourian (Late Night Laughs at The Comedy Chateau), and Stephanie Dalwin (Comedy Studio), a FODball Productions show serves as the premier stage for women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ superstars and fledgeling funny folks alike. Bookworms can browse a curated selection of both newly-released and long-loved books from All She Wrote—a pop-up bookstore showcasing the work of female, LBTQIA and non-binary authors.

Let go of what was and come through to discover what’s already inside of you!

Through afrocentric movement classes, SocaFusion creates an inner confidence to help you live more freely and authentically. Intended for all levels, the high-energy Master Fete Experience aims to support students in rediscovering what self-expression feels like through a fusion of styles including Soca, Dancehall, Hip Hop, West African, and Caribbean Folk. Beginning with a warmup crafted to wake up the body, choreography will break down into accessible learning segments to allow all students to fully understand and execute the movements. Tightly curated. Wildly creative. Always a good time.
