The annual benefit "Shut Up & Dance" returns April 9 for the 24th year. At the event, dancers from the Pennsylvania Ballet perform unique choreography for attendees. The proceeds from the event go to the Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance (MANNA), which helps individuals battling life-threatening illness such as cancer or AIDS.
Principal dancer of the Pennsylvania Ballet, Ian Hussey, will return as producing director for the fifth year. There is a new host, however. Martha Graham Cracker will present the show for 2016 and will give an interlude performance.
In addition to the performances, there will be both a before and after party.
Beforehand, there will be a VIP party at the Forrest Theatre with cocktails and bites. Tickets are $100 to attend. Then, after the show, all ticket holders are invited to Voyeur Nightclub.
