THE RED HOOK PROM a benefit for Cora Dance
Fasten your corsage, put on your dancing shoes, and come celebrate the start of summer and show the invincible Red Hook the love (and party) it deserves. On Saturday, May 11 at 7pm, Red Hook, Brooklyn is having a prom like you've never seen. Come to South Brooklyn Community High School at 173 Conover Street, walk up to the gym and help us celebrate this amazing neighborhood.
The event, voluntarily produced by Red Hook's own home/made (a restaurant and catering company), features delicious food, punch (spiked, just like we remember), sweet tunes by DJ Body Rock (yes, you read correctly) spinning 80's jams and requests, dance lessons from Cora Dance pros, a photo booth, the knighting of Prom King and Queen- nominations are local celebrities, and many more surprises!!!
The evening's performances include excerpts of Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance's newest work "Bench" (with dancers Solomon Goodwin and Sarah Burke) part of a larger work to premiere in Spring 2014 in Red Hook.
In addition to performances, the evening will include a silent auction, with beginning bids ranging from $5 up to several hundred. Items include tickets to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, spa packages, classes for kids and adults, vacation packages to the Berkshires and Disneyworld, and much much more!
The Red Hook Prom is the annual gala benefiting Cora Dance, a vital arts organization keeping Red Hook strong. We hope you will join us. All the proceeds of the evening go to support our 7 days a week of pay-what-you-can dance classes for ages 4 to 94+, as well as supporting the development of Red Hook's first studio theater where the community can see our work, the work of other community artists and beyond."
So doubleknot your scrunchie, tighten your bowtie, and help us celebrate a neighborhood that just won't quit!
