Bright Lights! Shining Stars!, a gala event to benefit the NYC Dance Alliance Foundation, will honor the legendary Roberta Flack with the NYCDAF's First Ambassador for the Arts Award on August 1, 2011 at the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts at NYU. 566 LaGuardia
Place, New York, NY 10012. The star studded evening of song and dance directed by renowned choreographer, dancer and instructor Joe Lanteri will also feature the awarding of $50,000+ in college scholarships to promising young dancers. Honorary Co-Chairs of the gala are Cassandra
Seidenfeld-Lyster and Robin Cofer.

The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with a Red Carpet Cocktail Reception, 7:30 pm the Awards Tribute & Special Guest Performances followed by a Post Show VIP Dessert & Champagne Party in the Skirball's magnificent Rosenthal Room. The NYC Dance Alliance Foundation is dedicated to empowering the next generation of professional dancers by advocating education and offering scholarships for secondary and college training. For the past 16 years, the NYCDA
has lead the industry in offering professional weekend conventions exposing young dancers to the best of the New York City dance world in a supportive, positive and fun environment and helping them take their first steps into the professional world.

Under the auspices of Executive Director Joe Lanteri the NYC Dance Alliance National Dance Convention, the culmination of scores of local gatherings held throughout the year, has become the single most important scouting opportunity for college and university recruiters
and their scholarship committees. No surprise as NYCDA alumni number among the ranks of such dance companies as Alvin Ailey, Cedar Lake Ballet; scarcely a Broadway musical is without a dancer from NYCDA and the world famed Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular recruits
most of it young talents via NYCDA.

VIP tickets for Bright Lights! Shining Stars are $300 & includes red carpet reception, VIP seating for awards show & after party. General seating tickets for the awards show only are $125 and $75. Sponsorships & Journal ads are available.
