DANCERS LOVE DOGS Charity Show Set for Artscape, May 25

On 25 May 2013, less than a year after the first event, the second Dancers Love Dogs charity performance will take place at the Artscape Theatre and once again the audience can look forward to a wonderfully entertaining evening featuring top dancers and performers, all collaborating towards the mass sterilization of dogs in and around the Mother City's rural areas and townships where this treatment isn't affordable.

Brigitte Reeve-Taylor, a local dance teacher and choreographer and the person behind Dancers Love Dogs, has again enlisted voluntary assistance from like-minded people in her broad network and circle of friends. Through her appeals several dance companies and studios in Cape Town will be participating in the once off performance, generously giving of their time without charge. Artscape has also offered the venue at a reduced rate. This dynamic show will showcase works by Cape Town City Ballet, Cape Junior Ballet, Bovim Ballet, Ikapa Dance Theatre, Waterfront Theatre School, Zip Zap, Martin Schonberg, the Eoan Dance Group & Adele Blank. Special guests include Dancing With Dogs Cape Town, a quartet of four women who perform with their dogs all of which have been rescued and nurtured back to wholeness by their trainers. The spectacular "Lillyslappedsilly" from Mince fame, will be the MC.

Since 2012, Dancers Love Dogs has spread it's reach to Johannesburg, Pretoria & Durban and the events have cumulatively raised over R290 000.00, which has allowed for more than 1500 animals to be safely sterilised. Dancers Love Dogs has also been registered as a non profit organisaton, securing its important official NPO status which enables corporates to donate with incentives.

The performance takes place on Saturday 25 May at 8:00 pm and tickets, via Computicket, cost R250 per person, the exact cost of one sterilsation. All the proceeds will go towards the venue hiring fee and the costs of sterilising dogs. A raffle will be held on the night with great prizes to be won, donated by several generous sponsors.

Anyone wishing to make a donation towards this worthy cause may contact Brigitte directly on or via the donated website: www.dancerslovedogs.weeblycom and on Facebook
