CUZ & Company presents the "Support the ARTs, CUZ U Can!" campaign. This campaign will spotlight, celebrate and salute the creative individuals that use their "Artistry"(creativity) to inspire people and promote positive changes in our communities! CUZ & Company has created a whole product line of TShirts & Accessories to commemorate, "Support the ARTs, CUZ U Can!"
This campaign is a small tribute to my best friend, the late Danny Clark. He was a multi-talented performer, prolific choreographer and a compassionate instructor to the creative art of dance. He felt that supporting and participating in the Arts was essential to the growth of one's humanity! Creating is a powerful gift from the Master Creator himself. Creating is a way of communicating with GOD! Creating is a form of communion with GOD's people! Support the Arts because you CAN!

CUZ & Company's Production - "Labor of LOVE" Showcase (Sunday, September 6, 2015) featuring Ken Crombie. Song by Indie.Arie, "Ready for Love".
Danny E. Clark danced for 10 years with the Alvin Ailey troupe in New York, where he became a principal dancer. He appeared on television, in videos and in theaters around the country and in Japan. When Danny moved back to St. Louis, Missouri (his hometown), he became a regular performer with Atrek Contemporary Dance, Historyonics, the St. Louis Black Repertory Company and at The Muny. One of Danny's favorite roles included Ranger, a soldier fighting the Nazis in the Black Rep's production of "The Ninth Wave," because the serious drama was a stretch for him. He also enjoyed the challenge of multiple roles, in productions such as "On the Outside Corner" with Historyonics and "Strands" with the Black Rep.
Our first "Labor of LOVE" Showcase series premiered in St. Louis, Missouri on Sunday, September 6, 2015 at The Hampton Inn, St. Louis/Westport in a St. Louis county, Maryland Heights, MO.
This series was created to promote businesses that catered to the needs of Unique People. It provided Live Entertainment that feed the Body, Mind & Soul. It was M.C'd by CUZ & Company's Musical Director, Jerry Richard. It introduced to St. Louis the talented vocalist, Ken Crombie with special guest, St. Louis' own, the beautiful Debra "FoFeet" Warren, author & spoken word artist.
