TUTU - 2016 Fundraiser event

TUTU - Audience, artists & business community dance for youth and new choreography

The TUTU benefit event organized by Danse Danse took place on May 12 in a casual, relaxed atmosphere in support of disadvantaged youth and the creation of new dance works. The performance was directed by choreographer Virginie Brunelle in collaboration with the creative team at Sid Lee and was held in Old Montreal. This key point in the annual Danse Danse fundraising campaign reached the sum of $83,000.

400 personalities from the arts and the business community were on hand to celebrate the vitality of contemporary dance, inspired by the members of the 2016 Troupe d’honneur.

"The funds raised will be used to support choreographers in their creative process, and will also allow youth from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend dance performances free of charge. We are pleased to note that year after year, the business community actively champions culture and dance, and we salute them for their support," said Pierre Des Marais, Artistic and Executive Director of Danse Danse. 

 

This festive event concludes the 2015-16 season, an especially rich one featuring a broad range of international performances, renowned choreographers, outstanding works from the dance repertoire, a lot of live music and the very first incursion of contemporary dance into the Maison symphonique de Montréal. A total of 17 dance pieces were enthusiastically received by the public during the course of the season.
