Thanks to Andrea Ekmark of the Roswell-based Atlanta Dance Central for passing this along:
Paloma Flores-Alvarez of Roswell will appear in the bright lights of Broadway on Saturday, September 21, as part of the National Down Syndrome Society's (NDSS) annual Times Square Video presentation.
The featured photographs highlight children, teens and adults with Down syndrome working, playing and learning alongside friends and family. These collective images promote the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome, which is the NDSS mission.
The photo of Paloma, who has Down syndrome, was selected from over 1,000 entries in the NDSS worldwide call for photos. Over 200 photographs will appear in the video, which will be shown on the News Corporation Sony Screen, located in the heart of Times Square.
Paloma is pictured (center) dancing on stage in Atlanta Dance Central’s May Recital. She is a member of the Foster-Schmidt Dance Academy for Down Syndrome.
