Broadway Dance Center (BDC) hosted the 2nd annual presentation of Premier October 17 at Symphony Space in New York City. Premier is a carefully curated evening of dance choreographed by BDC’s renowned faculty and guest artists. This year, the net proceeds from Premier were donated to Unidos por Puerto Rico, an organization that provides aid and support to those affected by Hurricanes Irma and María.
According to their website, “Unidos por Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, in collaboration with the private sector, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María. 100% of the proceeds will go to helping the victims affected by these natural disasters in Puerto Rico.”
Premier was a beautiful display of the talented, compassionate, and supportive community we have at BDC both on the stage and in the audience. Audience members responded with applause as they were moved by the compelling pieces shared on the stage in various styles of dance. The testimonial messages shared by Ayodele Casel and Maria Torres inspired many to give generously to this worthy cause.
