On Wednesday, 30 October 2013, Dance for All (DFA) will host their annual fundraising event, A Night of the Stars at the Fountains Hotel and Conference Centre, situated in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD.
DFA’s Mission is to provide children in historically disadvantaged communities with the opportunity for enjoyment, empowerment and promotion of self esteem through the medium of dance, as well as training professional dancers and developing a unique, indigenous dance company.
A Night of Stars is one of DFA’s major fundraising events of the year, where well known celebrities from Cape Town take time out of their busy schedules to help raise funds for this dynamic organisation. DFA has been operating for more than 22 years and for the past two years A Night of Stars has been a great success; as a result DFA has decided to take on the challenge for the third time.
This year guests will be entertained in a warm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere with an elegant touch. Expect top class comedians and entertainment which include a few musical performances. Guests will be welcomed by a group of the DFA’s junior students accompanied by live drumming. Renowned performer and comedian Soli Philander will be taking the role as Master of Ceremonies and will drive the evening’s entertainment.
Other speakers on the agenda include Tracy Klass, who was also responsible for securing Table Mountain as one of the 7 Wonders of the World, and Gino Fernandez, who has been making people laugh for more than 6 years with his ‘off the cuff wit’ and has built quite a good reputation amongst comedy goers.
