On Our Toes in the Hamptons

Evidence, A Dance Company Returns for
 6th Annual Performance Gala

Saturday August 22nd, at the Home of
Bernard & Joyce Jackson

Alicia Bythewood Chairs Gala

 Broadcast Journalist & Best-Selling Author
Rene Syler to Host

claimed  Evidence, A Dance Company 

 

 

 

 

On Our Toes in the Hamptons, the annual performance and fundraising gala featuring Evidence, A Dance Company one of the world’s premier professional dance companies, returns for the sixth year. Founded by Ronald K. Brown, Evidence, A Dance Company is rooted in African dance fusing Contemporary, Jazz and Ballet with the rhythms and sounds of the African Diaspora and Caribbean cultures. The late afternoon gala will take place at the Watermill residence of The Honorable Bernard Jackson & Joyce Mullins-Jackson Saturday August 22 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Former CBS’ “The Early Show” co-anchor & best-selling author Rene Syler will be the event’s emcee. Media Sponsor is Hamptons.com.

 

In just six years, On Our Toes in The Hamptons, the dream of Susan L. Taylor (author & Editorial Director Emerita Essence Magazine) and Reginald Van Lee (Sr. V.P., Booz Allen Hamilton) in bringing Black culture to the Hamptons, has evolved to become the only continuous, major African American cultural event of the Hamptons summer season. The mission of Evidence is to promote understanding of the African Diaspora through dance and storytelling

 

Alicia Bythewood of Sag Harbor and New York is Chairman of what has become the premiere African American cultural event of the season. Her committee includes fashion designer b Michael, Harriet Michel, Brian and Mira Mullins, Donna Williams. Reginald Van Lee, Neil R. Lowe, Joyce Mullins-Jackson, Reggie Canal, Leslie Mays, Zaid Abdul-Aleem, Dwayne Ashley, Monica F. Azare, Joanne E. Hill, Andrea Hoffman, Sandra D. Jackson-Dumont, James Sullivan, Jocelyn Taylor, Ancy Verdier and Lisa B. Walker.   

 

 

 

 

Now celebrating its 24th year, EVIDENCE, A Dance Company under the direction of founder, choreographer and dancer Ronald K. Brown has grown to become the pre-eminent African American dance company in the world. The company has garnered critical acclaim internationally and extraordinary praise for its creator. “Ronald K. Brown has emerged as one the strongest, most distinctive choreographers around” noted John Rockwell in the New York Times (February 9, 2006).

 .

Unusually sensitive to the human condition, Brown creates dances that attest to life’s struggles but continue to connect the individual to community with promises of redemption. New York Times dance critic Anna Kisselgoff noted “his themes are spiritual, even those who do not believe that there is a promised land might agree  that Mr. Brown makes a journey in that direction look persuasive and powerful.” She went on to add “Brown has moved into a class by himself.”

 

The company will celebrate its 25th season in 2010. Highlights include a four-week tour to Africa sponsored by the U.S. State Department and performances at the Vancouver International Dance Festival.

 

The late afternoon event will feature cocktails courtesy of Moet Hennessey; hors d’oeuvres and several Paella stations from The Seafood Shop of Wainscott; silent & live auctions of luxury items and one-of-a-kind packages auction, performances by the company and dancing with the dancers. Select auction items will be available for advance bidding on www.CharityBuzz.com.  The event is coordinated by The JFM Group.

 

Tickets are $250 & $500: Sponsor packages are $25,000, $15,000, $10,000, $7,500, $5,000 and $2,500. For tickets and sponsorships contact Alexandra Diaz, JFM Group at 914.235.1490 ex. 16 or alexd@thejfmgroup.com.
