Charity Spotlight: Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala to Benefit NYC Dance Alliance

On the evening of October 1st, the Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala to benefit New York City Dance Alliance took place at the NYU Skirball Center in downtown Manhattan. The event raises college scholarship funds, and since the foundation’s inception in 2010, over 200 dancers have shared in over $2 million dollars to attend the colleges of their choice.

The annual NYCDAF’s Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala brings together performers, dance educators and patrons to further its mission to broaden and advocate for performing arts awareness and training. The event begins with a red carpet cocktail reception, followed by a truly special gala performance featuring some of the most prominent names on Broadway.
