Message from the MMC Dance Advisory Board

Dear Friends of Dance,

During this pandemic year, the MMC Dance Department dancers have shown resilience and adaptation to a new virtual world. They have proven that the human spirit and creativity can soar even in the midst of chaos.

We invite you to celebrate these dancers at our virtual Dance Gala on May 28, 2021. We will witness their artistry and hear their stories and their aspirations. We will toast them, and you, our devoted supporters, with a virtual glass of the best champagne. We will wish for a speedy return to in-person performances and joyous receptions.

Your presence may be virtual this year, but your support for our talented dancers through the Dance Gala Fund, however, is very real.

The MMC Dance Advisory Board, invites you, Friends of Dance, to be our “real” partners in ensuring that the MMC Dance Department and its students continue to soar. That is a celebration indeed!

With deepest gratitude,

Eleanor Imperato
President, Dance Advisory Board
Marymount Manhattan College
