Around the Community
Here at St. Mark Village, we strive to find partners that make our Continuing Care Community the very best place to live and work.
Of our diverse group of partners, the ones dearest to our heart are three local arts organizations: Tarpon Arts, Tota Music and Theatre Conservatory, and Ruth Eckerd Hall.
As a Producer-Level Sponsor for the Tarpon Arts 2017-2018 Season, our contribution to the organization helps make it possible for this unique organization to continue bringing world-class entertainment and educational programs to Tarpon Springs.
St. Mark was highlighted at our sponsored show, Rhythm of the Dance, an amazing evening of live Celtic music and Irish step dancing that Residents and Staff attended together. Over the past few years, we have also been the recipient of two outstanding Dance Outreach programs. New York City based companies, Paul Taylor and Dance Heginbotham, came to the Village to entertain and dance with Residents and Staff from Independent Living and the Care Centers.
The young students of Tota Music and Theatre Conservatory inspire us with their talent, professionalism, and energy. This past Christmas, they performed outdoors in the evening by candlelight while the holiday lights in our courtyard flickered on to begin the most blessed of seasons at the Village. Recently, our Residents were even treated to a tour of the Conservatory to see the beautiful teaching and rehearsal spaces where they observed students in vocal, instrumental, dance, and acting studies.
Our longest partnership has been with Ruth Eckerd Hall, one of the best performing arts theaters in Florida. Through the years we have continued to sponsor shows including in April the groundbreaking musical, A Chorus Line. We were honored to welcome Zev Buffman, award-winning producer, President, and CEO of Ruth Eckerd Hall, to St. Mark to fascinate us with stories from his life and legendary career. If you love the arts there is no better place to enjoy the best of what our area has to offer than St. Mark Village. Join us as we continue to enjoy and support our creative partners.
