CELEBRATE NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY WITH US!
October 11th is National Coming Out Day – an important day celebrating the LGBTQ community and those make the important decision to “come out” and live as their authentic selves. This year, Kristi Faulkner Dance is hosting an “Empty the Closet” fundraiser on National Coming Out Day for their project titled “Not in My House” – a collaboration with the Ruth Ellis Center to engage and inspire LGBTQ youth through performance and storytelling. “Not in My House” is an original dance production representing the authentic voices and coming out stories of Ruth Ellis Center youth and Detroit-based professional dancers who identify as LGBTQ.
The “Empty the Closet” fundraiser will take place from 6-9pm October 11, 2017 at Fred Astaire Studios in Bloomfield Hills. The evening will include food, drinks, and an open salsa dance lesson with Fred Astaire Studio professional teachers. Party-goers who donate a bag of gently used/new clothing or new toiletries at the door will be entered into a raffle to win a prize. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn more about the Ruth Ellis Center and this exciting collaboration with Kristi Faulkner Dance and participate in a live auction to sponsor dancers.
