The Rock School/Curtis Institute of Music collaboration, a partnership envisioned over a decade ago, by the late Dr. Milton L. Rock–joins the superior talents of two world-renowned cultural institutions, right here in Philadelphia. Our 2020 Benefit features Rock School Students heralding from 17 countries.  

The evening will begin with a lavish cocktail hour and silent auction set high above Broad Street with grand views of the Avenue of the Arts from the Kimmel Center’s balcony and mezzanine. The world-premiere composition by Curtis composer Elizabeth Younan, will provide the musical landscape for the world-premiere ballet, choreographed by Rock School Artistic staff. The Curtis Rock collaboration will be unveiled in the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater with additional colorful and dynamic solo and ensemble performances by Rock School dancers. A delectable dining experience under the stars in the Kimmel’s expansive Commonwealth Plaza will be enlivened by live music, a live auction, and the ambiance of a red carpet gala.

When World-Class Dance meets the business community, Philadelphia wins…


The Rock School/Curtis Institute of Music collaboration, is a partnership envisioned by the late Dr. Milton L. Rock–joins the superior talents of two world-renowned cultural institutions, right here in Philadelphia. 

The 2020 Benefit Gala and Auction will highlight the talent of our students from all over the world, including the Ramirez triplets from Cuba. With funds raised from our annual events, The Rock School was able to arrange for these exceptionally talented, identical triplets to depart their Cuban homeland and come to Philadelphia so they could train to become dancers in the best companies in the world. 

Help make dance accessible to all–for 26,000 Philadelphia Public school children in need, and for dancers from across the globe.
