Upcoming Shows

The Movement Project

Saturday, January 21st at 7:00 pm

The Movement Project is a dance show that brings together both local and non-local dance groups for the purpose of raising awareness and fund research for a very rare and aggressive pediatric brain cancer called AT/RT (atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumors). AT/RT is highly malignant and thus has a high mortality rate. Children diagnosed under the age of three, which accounts for most of the diagnoses, are currently given a 10% chance of survival. AT/RT is resistant to current treatments and funding is very scarce to find new treatments. The Movement Project will donate 100% of our proceeds from the show to AT/RT research.

Our show will feature many different styles of dance including contemporary, modern, tap, hip hop, salsa and ballet. Some of the local performers featured are: The Movement, Flex Studios, Mariah Melson, High Voltage, and Salseros. Our non-local performers are: Regional School of Ballet Corvallis, OR, Solo work by Stephanie Golden, Director of Doré Dance Company San Francisco, CA and now based in Seattle, WA, Solo work by Amy J Lambert, Director of AJnC Seattle, WA. Doors will open at 6:00pm for silent auction and t-shirt sales. Ticket information is available at themovement.dance. Please join us in the fight against AT/RT!

Tickets are $15.
