5th Annual Red Hook Prom - Saturday May 6th

Cora Dance presents the 5th ANNUAL RED HOOK PROM - UNITED IN LOVE

What: A throwback prom for adults sponsored by Elements Hair Studio
When: Saturday, May 6th from 7pm - MIDNIGHT
Where: South Brooklyn Community High School
             173 Conover St in Red Hook, Brooklyn
How Much: Tickets are $100 or pay-what-you-can

Begun in 2013 as a much needed, community wide spirit lifter following Hurricane Sandy, the Red Hook Prom has brought together more community members, fly moves, sassy outfits and love than any other Cora event over the past five years. 2017 is RHP's 5th Anniversary and this dance party, and silent auction for grown-ups, supports the pay-what-you-can dance programs of Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance.
The evening is sponsored by and features a beauty station by Elements Hair Studio, performances by Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance students and professional dancers, a silent auction, and a photo booth by MVS Studios. Libations and snacks are provided by local Red Hook favorites - spiked punch and wine from dry dock and beer from Sixpoint Brewery.

Cora Dance is a small non-profit dance company and school that has been located in Red Hook for eight years. All of the dance programs and performances we offer are pay-what-you-can, providing all residents of the Red Hook community with access to dance experiences. Our mission: Through its company, studio and school, Cora creates exceptional dance experiences while addressing the impediments that restrict individuals from accessing the art form. Cora fosters common ground among diverse people, allowing all involved — artists, students, audiences and community members — to connect more deeply with one another through the arts.
