Crystle J. Slatin and Joshua Royalty will be singing a few songs at the market on Satruday. DDC, Diversity Dance Crew, Will also be performing. DDC was created by sisters Princess Sagi and Tina C. out of the pure love of dance and the excitement to share it with the world. DDC's main objective is to inspire children, young adults, and adults to reach for the stars and follow their dreams. DDC is here to show others that no matter what people think of you all that matters is that you believe in yourself, and if you don't then Diversity Dance Crew does. Their motto is Dance like nobody's watching, because it's nobody's business.
