Dancers For Good To Host Third Annual Benefit In East Hampton

Featuring an incredible line-up of dance companies and choreographers to benefit The Actors Fund

Dancers For Good, the magical Benefit evening of dance, will feature an extraordinary line-up of performances by renowned companies and choreographers such as Amy Marshall Dance Company, Carolyn Dorfman Dance, Eryc Taylor Dance, Martha Graham Dance Company, Pam Tanowitz Dance, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Rock the Ballet and a special tribute to Broadway’s CHICAGO The Musical!

Two legends of the dance world, Bebe Neuwirth and Chita Rivera will be honored. Guests will enjoy a spectacular array of ballet, modern and Broadway dance performances followed by an intimate cocktail reception with the honorees and an opportunity to meet the dancers.

The Benefit celebrates innovative, passionate and heartfelt dancers who have devoted their lives to the wonder of movement. 100% of Dancers For Good net proceeds support The Actors Fund which fosters stability and resiliency, and provides a safety net for all performing arts and entertainment professionals over their lifespan.  This is done through a wide variety of programs including The Dancers’ Resource which is geared toward the professional dancer dealing with significant injury, and helps by mitigating the isolation many dancers experience during recovery. Other vital programs include The Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts, The Actors Home, Womens’ Health Initiative, HIV/AIDS Initiative, and Disaster Relief among many services.

About Dancers For Good
During the summer of 2015 dancer Michael Apuzzo of Paul Taylor Dance Company, and event planner/former Broadway performer Eric Gunhus came up with the idea to bring a new and fresh event to East Hampton: a dance festival of some the most prestigious dance companies and prominent dancers in the world, sharing their gifts to raise funds in support of the arts and the local community.

Michael & Eric decided to combine their efforts and the collaboration brought Dancers For Good to life with their acclaimed event in summer of 2016. Dancers For Good incorporated as their own 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2018.

The name Dancers For Good is two-fold in meaning:  Dance is a discipline that stays with the dancer for life…for good. Additionally, this event brings together incredible dancers eager to give their time, talents and energy for charitable philanthropy…to do good.  This celebration allows all of us an opportunity to experience Dancers For Good.
