Why: Dance is for everyone. Whether you like to sway to Motown or shake it like Lady Gaga, dance truly is a universal language. "More than any other expression in the performing arts, dance transcends language, race, ethnicity and gender," say Youth OUTRight organizers.
Youth OUTRight's efforts are just as egalitarian as its dance moves. The organization provides local LGBTQ youth with a safe space to be themselves and build a community that accepts everyone, regardless of sexual orientation.
On Saturday, Oct. 26, Youth OUTRight will host a fundraiser that's sure to put some wear on your dancing shoes. DJ Steadylove will keep the dance floor hopping, and Asheville's own Natalie Smalls will host the evening's festivities. Youth OUTRight hopes to make this an annual event, so now is your chance to say, "I was there," no matter what kind of dance makes you want to kick up your heels.
