Shapiro & Smith Dance: Opening Night Dinner and a Show

Event Date: Friday, March 30, 2018
Event Time: 6:00 pm 
Event End Time: 10:00 pm 

Join Club member and choreographer Joanie Smith for a fabulous evening with fellow Club members and friends from the Tubman Centers. The evening includes a great dinner at the Woman’s Club, award-winning dance and behind-the-scenes experiences at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts with the convenience of provided transportation.

On opening night Shapiro & Smith Dance will premiere the lush and mysterious “Later That Night,” and back by popular demand are the comic “A Naked Man’s Shirt” and Smith’s critically acclaimed “Bolero,” danced by 18 powerhouse women. The Star Tribune called “Bolero” a “thrill ride of a dance,” and our Tubman friend Ruthie called it, “Girl power, straight up!”

For the fourth year Shapiro & Smith Dance is partnering with the Woman’s Club and Tubman to welcome guests from their centers to enjoy this evening of great food and company. We are thrilled the Minnesota State Arts Board just awarded S&S Dance and Tubman a grant to help fund our workshops, “Every Body Speaks.” This is going to be a great evening and here are the details:

6:00 pm Meet and greet in the Club Lounge
6:30 pm Dinner and remarks
7:30 pm Transportation to The Cowles Center
8:00 pm Shapiro & Smith Dance Performance
9:30 pm Transportation back to the Club and Reception with Artists

For $85.00, you can enjoy dinner at the Club, transportation to and from The Cowles Center, premium seating for the Friday, March 30 performance and a post-show reception with the dancers.

Want to come as a group? Buy a table for just $850.00.

For an additional $85.00, you can participate and sponsor a guest from Tubman for the evening. Share the gift of dance and help us take our Tubman friends out on the town for a special night.

For $250.00, you can enjoy the evening, sponsor a guest from Tubman AND partially underwrite the costs associated with Shapiro & Smith Dance’s workshops at Tubman. Your above and beyond gift helps us continue to create healing movement experiences ($80.00 tax deductible).
