On Thursday, February 14th Ikirenga Cy’Intore received the Mayo Street Arts Mission Award during a Valentine’s Day MSA Member’s event.
The group ended the event with a very special dance performance. One of the prizes for accepting the MSA Mission Award includes a rehearsal space here at MSA for the group to prepare for a final performance which is titled “Burakeye: Time to Get Up!” and will be held on May 4th at 7pm & May 5th at 4pm.
