"The Art of Experimentation" - A Benefit Celebrating Dance & Science

Event Dates: October 23, 2021

10/22/2012 UPDATE: Online Sales Closed.  Thank you for your interest in the Ballet Next Benefit! Tickets are no longer available online.

A cure for cancer requires outside the box thinking, pushing the limits of research and collaborating across disciplines for new approaches.

One of the greatest challenges facing the research space is the shifting priorities of our modern society. Science, like the arts, is considered by some to be an unnecessary luxury. However, the progress of both is crucial to our survival. The human mind craves a level of creation, discovery and experimentation that only the arts and sciences can deliver.

“Using the power of dance to drive awareness and raise funds for brain cancer research…this is the type of creativity and inspired partnerships needed to make a difference!”

Max Wallace, CEO, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure
