Dances From the Heart
Cowell Theater — Apr 30th
Dancers from major Bay Area companies unite for an evening of “Dances From the Heart,” presented by the Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation (REAF), San Francisco. The evening is a collaborative event uniting dancers from companies around the Bay Area including Ballet San Jose, Company C Contemporary Ballet, Diablo Ballet, Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, ODC, Smuin Ballet, Na Lei Hulu, Post:Ballet, Nikki & Ethan White/White Tree Fine Art, and other surprises to be announced.
According to Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation Executive Director Ken Henderson, “This will be the first time top dance companies from throughout the Bay Area have collaborated for an evening of dance to benefit a cause. While both New York City and Chicago have long-standing dance benefits like this, San Francisco has not been able to bring together its dancers for a cause -- until now. This is an event we hope to build into another signature, annual event for REAF.”
Funds raised will support the Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation of San Francisco and Larkin Street Youth Services with an additional grant to be made to Dancers’ Groups’ Parachute Fund.
