The Conference Forum Proudly Sponsors Dance Against Cancer 2017


  • April 26, 2017

  • The Conference Forum is proud to sponsor, for the second time, Dance Against Cancer on May 8th at the AXA Equitable Theater with world premiere dance performances. All proceeds from this event will benefit lifesaving cancer research that the American Cancer Society funds in New York City and beyond, and will support patient service programs like Hope Lodge New York City, which provides free lodging to cancer patients who need to travel to New York for treatment.

    This year’s lineup includes performances by members of New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Miami City Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Ballet Met, NYC’s Broadway community, ballroom and more.

    The Conference Forum is the organizer of the Immuno-Oncology 360° and Rational Combinations 360° conferences, so it is especially an honor to be part of a community that brings performing arts to help fight cancer.

    Founded in 2010 by Daniel Ulbricht, principal dancer at New York City Ballet, and Erin Fogarty, Director of Programming at Manhattan Youth Ballet, after they both lost family members to cancer. Dance Against Cancer has raised over $825,000 in support of the American Cancer Society. The event will showcase the works of Larry Keigwin, Christopher Wheeldon, James Whiteside, Marcelo Gomes, Frederick Earl Mosley, Edwaard Liang, Darrell Grand Moultrie, Josh Prince’s Broadway Dance Lab and five world premieres, created specifically for Dance Against Cancer.
