Shoppes at Palmilla Hosts Cocktail Party for Gala de Danza

Gala de Danza_05May2015_RP_12_r1The Shoppes at Palmilla was the scene for a fundraising cocktail soiree on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 to promote the upcoming Gala de Danza to be held Saturday, June 13, and Sunday, June 14, at the Papellón Cultural de la República in Cabo San Lucas.

Gala de Danza was created by Christina Lyon, artistic director and a former American Ballet and English National Ballet dancer, and Lourdes Tellez, who knows the struggles that talented dancers endure and who now inspires local talent at her Danza Tellez Studio in San José del Cabo. Their mission is to bring the finest artists and talents to Cabo San Lucas, while at the same time inspiring underprivileged youth to receive dance training.

The primary purpose of the event was to present and raise funds for their social project, ” Danza que Da Esperanza”, Dance that brings hope, that provides opportunities in the discipline of dance and culture for children and young local talents living in vulnerable situations.
