In celebration of Dance Place’s continued charge forward, at our EMBARK Season Gala we will be toasting to 41 years of Dance Place and honoring Executive Artistic Director Christopher K. Morgan’s incredible tenure at Dance Place. This year’s Gala is a reduced capacity, in-person event with a choice of two nights to attend – November 12 and 13. Additionally, the Saturday night event will include a virtual viewing option for audiences to join in the festivities from their homes.
The evening will feature performances by Dance Place’s current Artists in Residence Tariq Darrell O’Meally & Britta Joy Peterson, national artists slowdanger and Gesel Mason, and artists in our Dance Place Youth Performing Company.
A more detailed breakdown of the event, and how audiences can join us at the Gala, is below:
IN-PERSON – Tickets and sponsorships available to attend the gala in-person include safe outdoor drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the 8th St. Arts Park, and the live performance in the Cafritz Family Foundation Theater! Guests attending in person will also be eligible to bid on the virtual silent auction. (Maximum of 4 persons per party allowed to attend in person.)
VIRTUAL ATTENDANCE – FREE and open to ALL! Guests can join the live streamed version of the in-person theater performance from the comfort of their homes. On SATURDAY only, Dance Place will livestream the performance, which will include special commentary, interactive moments, and opportunities to chat live with other viewers and participate in the virtual silent auction. Sponsors of the event will receive a special goody box delivered to their homes.
Both nights of the Gala, including the live streamed virtual option, will have the same performance program. Dance Place is excited to find our way back together at this virtual and in-person fundraising event.
