On August 8th, 2015, Arthur Murray Dance Center Cranford is proud to invite everyone to our “At the Movies” Summer Showcase of 2015. Hosted at Kean University’s Kean Stage at the Wilkins Theatre, this theatre night is a fundraising event for Technology Against ALS, with tickets for $25. This event is open to the public, so everyone is encouraged to bring friends and family!
The show will feature Ballroom dances by students and staff of Arthur Murray Dance Center Cranford, including those of our sister centers, Montclair and Princeton. This is our second time holding this event, and our staff and students have been eagerly practicing for several months to bring you performances inspired by some of their favorite films and icons, with everything from The Pink Panther, to James Bond, to Dirty Dancing, and Marilyn Monroe. Anyone with a ticket may attend, regardless of whether or not they are students with Arthur Murray or Kean University, so please feel free to invite others to join us for this thrilling evening.
Kean Stage, Wilkins Theatre’s largest theatre, can house over 900 attendees, with free parking to attendees, as well as wheelchair accessibility and seating. Kean University proudly supports the arts and regularly hosts student productions, as well as allow other companies to utilize its facilities to bring its students as well as the public unforgettable performances.
Proceeds from the night will benefit Technology Against ALS, a charity dedicated to relieving some of the strain and hardships faced by those with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Because ALS affects the motor neurons in the brain and spine, people with the disease gradually lose motor functions, making even simple communications difficult or impossible. Technology Against ALS helps to combat this issue by specifically developing new technologies, such as communication devices for people to be able to continue to connect with and be understood by the world around them.
Arthur Murray Dance Center Cranford staff and students are very excited to share this night out “At The Movies” with everyone, so please come join us for a fantastic evening! You can purchase tickets online at the link below, or stop in at Arthur Murray Dance Center of Cranford to pick some up in-person. We hope to see you there, August 8th, at the Wilkins Theatre.
