Christel House Fundraiser Performance
Performing for a Cause
This past weekend, GHDT took part in a fundraiser for a wonderful organization. Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, as well as the students in G2, performed in downtown Indianapolis. The performance was part of a 2-hour show raising money and awareness for Christel House. The company performed three pieces, and G2 one. Along with GHDT, there were many other performers working together. Anita Hjorth Lerche, a Danish singer who is well-known for her Indian songs, performed many numbers. Other appearances included flautist Gareth Laffely, Bollywood Beats dance group, Epiphany Dance Collective, Ballet Folklorico Mosaics, and singers Katie Schuman and Katy Gentry.
Together, the around 200 attendees raised over $180,000 for Christal House schools. Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre has been a part of this annual fundraiser for the past three years now. Christel House is a welcomed sponsor of the company, and the company loves giving back to this organization and helping raise so much money for the students of Christel House.
