Inaugural Toast for the Talent - Partners in Dance Fundraising Soiree

Saturday, February 11th |  6:30-7:30pm | Gilmore Theatre Complex

Tickets are $50 and all proceeds support WMU dance students!

Join Partners in Dance Board Members to celebrate and support WMU dance students in their pursuit of excellence. Cash bar and light hors d'oeuvres generously provided by Commensoli’s Italian Eatery. Experience first-hand testimonials of how the department of dance has impacted its students and learn how to participate in furthering this legacy.

Be sure to also purchase tickets to the Winter Gala Dance Concert at 8pm to enjoy an exciting evening of WMU dance student performance following the soiree!  This year’s Winter Gala features Great Works Dance Project, excerpts from Family of Jazz choreographed by Kim Cooper of Decidedly Jazz Danceworks.  This joyful and dynamic celebration of jazz dance is performed to a 7-piece jazz ensemble directed by WMU jazz professor, Keith Hall!  The concert also includes new works by dance faculty and students, as well as guest artist Kiki Lucas’ work Ricochet performed by our touring ensemble Western Dance Project.

Western Michigan University Partners In Dance supports dance students to encourage growth and excellence in their academic experience fostering a new generation of exceptional dance professionals.

Again, this purchase does not include a Winter Gala performance ticket. Patrons need to add performance tickets to their order.
