The new Diplomats of Dance Society held its inaugural event in late August.  The sold out cocktail party, which raised more than $5,000, was held at the Sofitel Hotel’s Le Bar (and featured French hors d’oeuvres) in support of Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company.

Diplomats of Dance Society was founded in the summer of 2014 by Nikki Hollander, Christelle Gorman, Cecile Remington and Jameson Freeman,  for diplomats to share their appreciation, curiosity and generosity while connecting with a critically acclaimed choreographer, dancers, other artists, fans and friends.

Funds from the summer kick-off event will cover expenses relating to the company’s Sept. 14-22 trip to Suriname on behalf of the U.S. State Department (and other expenses relating to the 2014-2015 season), where the company will represent the United States at the Moengo Festival of Theatre and Dance and teach master classes in American modern dance.
