In this episode, we focus on artists. First, we’ll meet a man who is using his passion for art to pay tribute to his hometown of Braddock. Then we’ll hear the soulful sound of local singer and songwriter Bridgette Perdue before getting a lesson in improvisational dance from Gia Cacalano. We'll introduce you to this gifted dancer who now heads not one but two local dance companies.
