Dancers Give Back Dallas is happening this weekend!
Dallas native and Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet member Ida Saki (22), is the brain child behind this inaugural event. Dancers Give Back Dallas will take place Jan. 4 and 5 at Bishop Lynch High School. (Click here to check out my interview with Ida Saki when Cedar Lake came to Dallas last February!)
Saki along with other dancers, including Billy Bell (Cedar Lake and So You Think You Can Dance) will perform and offer a weekend of master classes to raise money for pediatric cancer research and patient support. A cause that is very near and dear to Saki as she lost a close friend to leukemia in 2011.
Saturday workshops will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday’s will run from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can register at DancersGiveBackDallas.com or at the door.
In addition to classes there will also be a performance showcase Sunday evening featuring a solo by Saki, repertoire from Houston Met Dance Company, Dark Circles Contemporary Dance and Pedestrian Dance Movement. (If you want to know more about the new Dark Circles Contemporary Dance click here to check out my conversation with Artistic Director Josh Peugh!)
Tickets for the Sunday performance are $15 and are available at the door or by contacting Info@DancersGiveBackDallas.com.
I hope to see you all there!
