ShaLeigh Dance Works believes in the power of diversity and challenging the status quo, we create socially conscious dance-theatre work and outreach programs with impact. We believe that what we do in the studio will affect the world outside. This past year, we produced 22 performances, 4 touring productions, 3 world premieres, 20 outreach classes, and 8 community workshops. We provided a platform for 2000 community members by hosting Durham’s March for Our lives. We brought visibility to individuals with special needs by creating two performances at DPAC and were able to provide clothing and blankets to individuals who are homeless.

ShaLeigh Dance Works is celebrating its 4th season in NC this year. Join us at our Annual Revolutionaries in the Dark Gala, a campaign for our future, accessible outreach programs, living wages and continued artistic innovation. We cordially invite you to join us December 7th, 2018 for our evening benefit Gala, Revolutionaries in the Dark!

The event will kick off with Inspiring Guest Speakers who are creating art with impact and the festive evening will feature powerful performances, delicious wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres, a wellness raffle and silent auction, and an artist after party!

This is a one of a kind fundraiser that reflects the innovative spirit that defines ShaLeigh Dance Works, and our success is driven by the dynamic arts community we serve. All proceeds will support the future of ShaLeigh Dance Works and our commitment to artistic innovation, social justice, and accessible outreach programs for the community.

Join us at Reality Ballroom for this immersive evening of revelry with special guests and more in support of ShaLeigh Dance Works’ 2018-19 Season.

A gathering of rebels, agitators, freedom fighters and frondeurs to support ShaLeigh Dance Works, a multi-cultural dance-theatre company that challenges the status quo and creates programming with impact.

Stay tuned for updates about guest speakers, performers, and other exciting announcements about the gala!

Dress in All Black.
Venture into the darkness for a celebration of revolutionary performing artists, thinkers, doers, be-ers, and creators.
