Hudson Valley Dance Festival Set for 10/11
The second edition of Hudson Valley Dance Festival, a stunning display of world-class dance, will return to the Historic Catskill Point on Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 5:00 pm. The event is produced by and benefits Dancers Responding to AIDS, a program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
After a sold-out inaugural performance last year that raised an impressive $76,950 for those most vulnerable among us, Dancers Responding to AIDS will once again transform the 115-year-old wooden warehouse at Catskill Point into a modern-day dance venue, complete with a stage and raised seating for 350.
The festival's captivating program will include powerfully engaging Gallim Dance and theatrically witty Keigwin + Company. Additional performers will be announced this summer.
Hudson Valley Dance Festival (#hvdance) will feature one performance only, beginning at 5:00 pm at the Historic Catskill Point, 1 Main Street in Catskill, NY.
The money raised at Hudson Valley Dance Festival will help DRA and Broadway Cares provide grants to more than 450 AIDS and family service organizations nationwide, helping to ensure that those in need have access to lifesaving medications, counseling, healthy meals and emergency financial assistance.
Ticket prices range from $40-$250. Sponsorship opportunities also are available. Sponsor benefits include a pre-performance cocktail reception, recognition on printed and online materials along with an intimate VIP reception at the art-filled home of Mark Beard and James Manfredi, a former 19th century church.
Tickets are available online now at dradance.org or by calling 212.840.0770, ext. 229.
Hudson Valley Dance Festival is sponsored by The New York Times, United Airlines, City National Bank and Catskill Mountain Foundation.
