The ninth annual Dance Against Cancer will return to the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on April 22nd. The show will begin at 7pm, and all proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. Guests can also stop by the VIP cocktail reception at 5:30pm before the show begins.
The event, hosted by Nev Schulman, will feature 50 dancers from prestigious companies such as the New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theater, and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
Audiences will not only get to experience choreography created by George Balanchine, Bob Fosse, and Justin Peck, but also new work from Gemma Bond, Ayodele Casel, Ann Easterling, and Frederick Early Mosely.
Dance Against Cancer was founded and co-produced by Erin Fogarty and Daniel Ulbricht. Fogarty is the director of programming at Manhattan Youth Ballet. Ulbricht is the principal dancer at the New York City Ballet.
Both lost a parent to cancer. This inspired them to use dance to unite people, raise funds and beat it.
Since it was formed, Dance Against Cancer has raised over $1 million in support of the American Cancer Society.
Join these dancers for a special one-night-only event to honor those affected by cancer.
