Charity Dance Show
Once again, Arcadia High School’s Dance Department is hosting our highly anticipated Charity Dance Show! This year, the performance will be held on Friday, December 6th at 7:00pm in the Arcadia Performing Arts Center. Featured in this performance are Arcadia High School’s beginning and intermediate dance students, as well as Orchesis Dance Company. We will also be joined by professional and pre-professional dance companies from the Los Angeles and Orange County region. The night will be full of electrifying performances of all dance genres. From Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Jazz and more, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy!
This year, a portion of our proceeds will be going to Doctors Without Borders, an international organization dedicated to providing medical aid to victims affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. Also known by its French name, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the organization was established in December of 1971 guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality. The MSF staff travel across the world to provide aid to all victims, regardless of one’s gender, race, religion, creed, or political affiliation. Today, Doctors Without Borders has become a worldwide movement with more than 67,000 team members working in more than 70 countries. We are very excited to be highlighting such an amazing organization this year. It has always been the Charity Show’s mission to give back to the community and inspire change through art and dance!
