Dancing With The Survivors presented by The Pink Fund
Dancing With The Survivors pairs breast cancer survivors with professionally trained dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studios across the country. For three months, they meet weekly to learn and perfect a ballroom style dance to be performed in front of an audience at their venue. Now in its fourth year, this annual, nationwide fundraising event to benefit The Pink Fund is an evening of dancing, music, cocktails and delicious food to celebrate a nationwide community of breast cancer survivors who thrive in their recovery, and make a difference in the lives of other cancer patients. The money raised goes to local breast cancer patients experiencing the devastating financial losses that may occur during treatment.
The Pink Fund and Houston area Fred Astaire Dance Studios are seeking breast cancer survivors in the Houston area to dance in this event. The call is open to women and men. Because this event is a showcase and not a competition, dance experience is not required. Those who wish to dance in honor of a survivor struggling with the disease, or to honor the memory of a loved one taken by the disease, are also welcome. Those interested are required to submit a “Request to Dance” form online. Selections will be made by July 15 to allow participating dancers three months of training with their assigned Fred Astaire professional.
