Dance Times Square (my former studio) is having their biannual professional / student showcase on October 25 at the Danny Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College. This one will feature and honor a group of breast cancer survivors from the Helen Sawaya Compassionate Care Fund. The show begins at 7:30, and from 6-7 in the Kaye theater lobby there will be a reception and pre-show silent auction to raise money for the Fund. Part of the ticket proceeds will also be donated to it.
Pro dancers this year will include Sabra Johnson and Neil Haskell, former SYTYCD winner and finalist respectively, along with Eugene Katsevman and Maria Manusova, a pair of excellent Latin dancers who usually place in the finals in the national competitions. Additionally, Aprile Millo, a star with the Met Opera, will perform (singing I suppose!). Hmmm, it’s usually only Latin / Ballroom dancers who’ve performed in the professional portion of the show, so this should be very exciting. As usual, there’s an after-party as well at the studio.
Tickets range from $25 to $75 and can be purchased here.
