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.
