Baila Society, a leading New York Salsa dance company, presents the second annual “Bailando Por Una Causa”: A Night of Dancing, a phenomenal showcase of various styles of dancing including Salsa, Tango, African, Rumba, and Hip Hop to raise awareness and funds for the Latino Commission on AIDS, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS in all communities, on Tuesday, October 4th at the El Museo Del Barrio on 1230 5th Avenue at 104th Street.
The event, featuring dance performances by Baila Society, Djoniba Dance Centre, Ballet Hispanico, Peridance Capezio Center, DeMa Dance Company, Afro-Cuban dancer Yesenia Selier and more represents the cultures and traditions of the diverse communities affected by HIV/AIDS and equally engages in addressing the impact of HIV/AIDS and stigma on all communities.
“As the son of a mother who died of AIDS and a father who contracted HIV, recovered and is now living a healthy life, it means a lot to me to collaborate again with the Commission,” said Joseph Rivera, co-founder of Baila Society. “We are very proud to bring together this talented collection of dancers with the hopes of not only raising money for the Commission but to also create awareness for the vital work the Commission does in combating HIV/AIDS throughout all communities.”
The evening will feature a VIP cocktail reception at 6:00pm with performances beginning at 7:00pm. VIP tickets, which include a fully catered cocktail hour, preferred seating and a free dance class at Peridance Capezio Center, are $50 and performance tickets are $25. All are welcome to the official after party at 10pm. 100% of all proceeds from the event will benefit the Latino Commission on AIDS.
