Carolyn Dorfman Dance is so grateful to our generous sponsors and patrons in helping us exceed our Gala Benefit fundraising goal.

Congratulations go to our hardworking 2018 Gala committee, co-chaired by Joan Chiang Paulin and Martha Mensch, with strong support from the board of trustees and administrative staff for planning another successful gala. Their efforts enabled us to raise over $127,000.

Carolyn and our spectacular dancers were thrilled to perform to a near sold out crowd at NJPAC and for the incredible response to Cercle d’Amour, Lifeline, and the World Premiere of Snap Crackle Pop – our historic collaboration with Pilobolus Artistic Director Renée Jaworski. We were pleased that everyone seemed to love being entertained at the gala reception by The Hubcaps and our surprise guest, La Bamba (Richie Rosenberg).

Thank you again for Being Part of the Movement that made our 2018 Gala Benefit a huge success. We are truly grateful for your continued support that enables Carolyn Dorfman Dance to move, empower, teach, reflect and connect across New Jersey, the US and internationally.
