Guardian Dance Company celebrates dance and joy at the Claggett Center

Last week at the Claggett Center, a retreat destination in Buckeystown, MD, 4 generations of culture bearers gathered to ensure that the chain of transmission of those memories would not be broken. “The Arts have transformative power,” explained Guardian Director Breai Michelle, “African Americans have so often turned to music and dance for solace, inspiration or unification. We are working here to make sure that the young ones who are coming up know the beauty and hope of their own story so that they can live the healthiest and freest lives possible.”

Dioceses of Maryland and Washington Announce Partnership with Claggett Center

Our vision is one and our commitment is steadfast in the power of camp and retreat ministries to be a beacon of growth, change, and hope in both dioceses. This is especially relevant now while so many recover from trauma experienced this past year due to the coronavirus pandemic, and as our communities search for ways to heal and support one another. Claggett has the power to be a place of recovery and renewal. We welcome all to be formed and transformed at, by, and through God’s grace at the Claggett Center.
