All the Right Moves is the celebration of self expression through movement and focuses on the lives of Rock School students, and the important decisions or “moves” which influenced their long term goals to pursue dance as a career.  The Rock School’s Benefit Gala generates money that goes towards over $900,000 in scholarship funding for our extraordinary worldwide dance talent, significantly augments programing at Rock Center and Rock West, and allows us to continue to expand RockReach, the most extensive dance and movement community outreach program in the region!  The 2017 Gala marks the 9th Rock School/ Curtis Institute collaboration that features a world-premiere ballet choreographed by The Rock School's Ballet Master, Justin Allen, set to an original score composed by Curtis Institute student-composer, Chelsea Komschlies, and performed by Rock School dancers.  The exciting presentation will also include vignettes from our conservatory ballet students, and a special performance with local children from RockReach.  We hope you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to support The Rock School and our students by sponsoring this year’s magnificent event!

Patron level (and higher) supporters are invited to join an exclusive group of ballet lovers for a party at the private residence of Martee McGeary Snider in Wyndmoor, PA on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 6-8pm.  Please refer to the sponsorship/ticket form below for a detailed description of the 2017 Benefit Gala & Auction Sponsorship and benefits.  The School has become extremely well known and we credit our donors extensively.  In fact, we are always open to creating custom packages that serve your individual company’s needs. RSVP your participation by March 3, 2017 to be included on the printed invitation, which reaches over 4,000 Rock School benefactors.
