Career Transition For Dancers presents the 10th anniversary LATIN DANCE PARTY tonight, March 24th, 2015 at the beautiful Columbus Citizens Foundation, 8 East 69th Street (off Fifth Avenue), New York, New York 10021. Sponsored by Rolex Watch USA, the benefit includes cocktails/open bar & hors d'oeuvres at 7:00 pm, a three-course sit-down dinner at 8:00 pm, and dancing to the sounds of Louis Bauzo & Musicians along with a special performance by Arthur Murray Dance Center, Columbus Circle. There will also be a Latin dance lesson.
Career Transition For Dancers presents this special Benefit Gala to support the multifaceted life span of dancers. Whether performing, creating choreography, starting a business, or leaving the dance world altogether, our goals are to raise funds to ensure positive futures for these talented artists. The dress code is "Whatever Makes You Dance." This fun-filled evening of Latin entertainment will capture the glamour of a sophisticated Manhattan supper club with a beautiful dance floor and food and drink to warm up the March night.
