"Bringing the Arts to the People and the People to the Arts" is the mission of Festival Dance and Performing Arts Association, located in Moscow, Idaho. The organization provides dance performances, education and outreach for people in north central Idaho and Eastern Washington. A $3,000 grant from the Florence Wasmer Fund for Arts and Culture provided a three-day residency of Rainbow Dance Theatre, a professional dance company from Oregon. The residency included a public performance, free educational programs and free dance master classes showcasing diverse dance styles for youth and adults from communities in Latah, Whitman, Benewah and Nez Perce counties.
