Dance Now Ensemble (DNE) is presenting its second annual “Performance for a Cause”–this year benefitting the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, a non- profit organization that partners with groups like the City’s Fifth District which includes the Little Haiti community. The reception and performance take place at the Little Haiti Cultural Center on Friday, February 18. The reception begins at 7:30 pm; performance at 8:30 pm.

The performance raises funds and visibility for the educational and outreach work of the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, especially in the Little Haiti area. Founded in 1993 by three breast cancer survivors, the Founda-tion’s mission is to “End Breast Cancer through Advocacy, Education, and Research”.

Co-artistic director Diego Salterini announced that the concert features DNE favorites that shine a light on the challenges and triumphs of spirited women. The show will also include solos from the repertoire of noted West Coast choreographer Tandy Beal – known for her imagination and humor, her braiding together of dance, circus, and theater – and whose diverse performance trajectory has recently included international touring with singer Bobby McFerrin and films with Tim Burton. The DNE Board of Directors is hosting the reception that also serves to acknowledge the service of the Honorable Richard P. Dunn, II City of Miami Commissioner for the Little Haiti area.

Dance Now! co-artistic director Hannah Baumgarten stated “ Like Dance Now!, the Florida Breast Cancer Foun-dation believes that community partnerships make a difference in getting things done – when groups share their passions and concerns, the community grows and people’s lives are better.” In addition board president Elizabeth Camargo stated: “This is a special opportunity for Dance Now to give back to the community as an on-going
commitment of the dance company.”
