Starting at 7 PM you can take advantage of free dance lessons by the awesome Providence Swings in the TD Bank Ballroom and after that you can dance the night away to the great live music by Roger Ceresi’s All Starz who are appearing for an unprecedented 8th year in a row! Tonight, they’ll be accompanied by DJ Wil Reed.
Don’t miss the season opening TD Bank Ballroom at WaterFire Providence! Thanks TD Bank for sponsoring this popular Providence event!

Each year, in partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), award-winning educators from across Rhode Island take part in WaterFire. The annual fall event ‘Celebrating Educational Excellence in Rhode Island’ is part of our #Art4Impact Community Heroes event series.
This year we are unable to gather together at WaterFire so we are using our online channels to give all of our RI Teachers and Educators of the Year the recognition they so richly deserve.
