BALLROOM BASIX has announced its 9th Annual Benefit Gala that will be held at the historic Edison Ballroom in the heart of Times Square in New York on October 27. BALLROOM BASIX Benefit Gala is a dance charity event supporting non-competitive arts-in-education programming for schoolchildren in NYC and beyond. The celebration will include an entertainment show, a three-course meal, an open bar, music, and many more.


BALLROOM BASIX is a unique arts-in-education initiative committed to the development of students’ fitness, health, and social skills. Headquartered in Harlem, it brings its dance programming to all five boroughs of NYC, enabling schoolchildren – regardless of their appearance, ability, popularity, or ethnicity – to connect with one another respectfully and rotationally. BALLROOM BASIX also teaches students the inherent etiquette of Ballroom and Latin dancing, thus helping them build their social skills and confidence in their ability to master something new. “Making manners matter…every move we make!” is a meaningful motto, and it is held high by every member of BALLROOM BASIX.

The central mission of BALLROOM BASIX has always been cultural, social, physical, and emotional engagement, and the initiative follows it strictly. Since its inception in 2008, it has been working assiduously to contribute to the health and wellness of students through non-competitive partner dance instruction. The initiative has already served over 18,000 schoolchildren in more than 95 schools in NYC, launched arts-in-education programs in Newburgh and Hudson, provided a series of dance workshops to Physical Education teachers citywide, and done so many other things for the local community.

About BALLROOM BASIX Benefit Gala

BALLROOM BASIX Benefit Gala is an annual dance charity that supports the initiative’s program for schoolchildren. The event, which will be held this year on October 27, will feature an open bar, cold and hot hors d’oeuvres, and a three-course gourmet meal, along with an amazing entertainment program. Guests will be able to dance to the music of DJ Peter Collins and world-known sounds of Joe Battaglia and his Big Band Orchestra, see the professional show by Mechyslav Pavlyuk and Gemma Arnold, enjoy the performance by BALLROOM BASIX students, and try themselves at Tango After-Party. The celebration is expected to be glamorous and highly fashionable, with all proceeds going to benefit the non-competitive partner dance program for children.
