SFDC Masquerade Gala
Please join us as South Florida Dance Company presents their first major fundraiser ... The Masquerade Gala on October 22 from 6 to 11 PM at the beautiful Meadowood Golf & Tennis Club.
The evening will feature live music, special performances from the SFDC students, DJ Chris Calvo, dancing, photo booth fun, hors d'oeuvres, cash bar, raffles, a fabulous silent auction and MORE! The night will be full of fun! All proceeds will benefit The South Florida Dance Company's performances of The Christmas Carol and their spring ballet - both shows performed at the beautiful Sunrise Theatre in historic downtown Fort Pierce.
At South Florida Dance Company, we believe that a balance of high quality instruction and a positive atmosphere are key to the success of every dancer! SFDC began in 2008 with a passion driven dream to expose students to a rigorous training program, while nurturing a feeling of support and acceptance for all that come through the doors. Here, every child has the same opportunity to rise above the norm.
Know for their yearly performance of The Christmas Carol, SFDC has based this full length contemporary ballet performance on Charles Dickens' classic which tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, his greed and "Bah…Humbug" attitude toward people, and his realization that giving is better than getting. Scrooge's old partner who suffered a similar fate and has come back to warn Scrooge of his future life "in chains," foretells the visits of 3 ghosts that will show him his past, present and future in the pathway he has chosen. In this heartwarming story of second chances, Scrooge learns that the only treasure worth having is in the gifts of the people that meets and in those who love him. A must see performance with powerful dancing, beautiful costumes, memorable sets, and show-stopping effects! A Christmas Carol, a beautiful lesson for both young and old that reminds us what is really important during the holiday season and in life.
Unlike other studios, SFDC gives all children the chance to perform - this production is open to any child in the community to audition. Students do not have to be students of SFDC to audition and perform.
With so many schools in our area, and throughout the country, cutting performing arts programs it is very important that children are given the chance to perform, succeed and express themselves through the performing arts. With rising costs, it is the goal that this fundraiser will help to allow ALL students to participate. Funds raised will directly benefit this program and these kids. With the community support to embrace the performing arts for our children we can allow all kids to be successful and soar!
We look forward to seeing you on October 22!
