Evidence, A Dance Company will host its 10th Annual "On Our Toes... In The Hamptons" Summer Benefit tonight, August 17 from 4:00-8:00pm at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton. The "On Our Toes..." benefit has become one of the premier cultural events of the Hamptons social season.
Guests from the arts and entertainment industry and the business community will gather on the sprawling grounds of the Hayground School to attend the annual event. The festive summer affair will begin with a cocktail reception, followed by a light dinner and dessert, auction, a spectacular performance by Evidence, and their signature "Dancing with the Dancers".
The summer benefit will present a special performance of HIGH LIFE, by the internationally acclaimed-Evidence, A Dance Company. Choreographed by Founder and Artistic Director Ronald K. Brown, HIGH LIFE draws striking parallels of the Great Migration in the U.S. depicting the journeys from the South to the North and from West African villages to the city. Evidence, A Dance Company focuses on the seamless fusion of traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word.
"Evidence, A Dance Company is privileged to return for our tenth year to the Hamptons for our annual benefit," said Evidence's Artistic Director Ronald K. Brown. "We're grateful for the tremendous support that we've received each year benefitting the Dance Company and our innovative community outreach programs." Brown is the world-renowned choreographer of Tony Award-winning THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESS. He recently choreographed a powerful new dance work, "Four Corners", for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
