Collage’s Annual Gala is one of the city’s premier annual celebrations. Now in its 11th year, this Grand Opening Gala is a momentous celebration with performances by Collage’s world-class professional company and students from the Collage Dance Conservatory. Live jazz, delicious cuisine, and seated dinner for VIP ticket-holders, round out a truly unique and monumental experience. The gala also serves as your chance to experience a sneak peek of repertoire for the 12th performance season of the Collage Dance Collective!

Featuring performances by Grammy-nominated singer Eric Benét, Cameron Bethany, Collage’s international touring company, the acclaimed Collage Youth Ensemble and more!

This majestic evening at the all-new Andrea Louise Jenkins Center for Dance (formerly the Collage Dance Center) will also feature cuisine by Chefs Erling Jensen and Phillip Ashley.
