Dancing for the Arts

Young Audiences of Louisiana (YALA) celebrated the 9th Annual Dancing for the Arts gala on Friday, November 16 at Harrah's Casino Theatre. The primary fundraiser to support YALA's afterschool and summer arts in education programs, Dancing for the Arts featured celebrity dancers, notable judges, a silent auction, cocktails, and fine fare.

Camille Whitworth presided as the Mistress of Ceremonies, welcoming our celebrity dancers who took to the dance floor for an evening of rug-cutting competition in support of Young Audiences of Louisiana's afterschool and summer arts education programs. Stephanie Burks, Mary Katherine Lonatro-Tusa, Kenny Lopez, and Steven Putt make up our esteemed 2018 panel of judges. YALA is honored to have had Mayor LaToya Cantrell as our Honorary Dancer this year!

YALA gives a special thanks to our 2018 Star Dancers:

Nadine Brown
Sandra Thompson Herman
Austin Marks
Christina & Tony Rodrigue
Brionne Stewart & Trent Marcelle
Tamara J. Wyre

This year's event was chaired by Stella del Bianco, Gail Barnes McKenna, and Tyree Worthy. Melissa Booth, Anita Demps, and Allison Kupperman served as the Silent Auction Chairs.

Thank you to all our community partners, sponsors, dancers, judges, and guests for making the event a great success in raising much needed funds for arts in education!
