Classical ballet and contemporary dance – along with a surprise or two – await the audience at the Pointe of the Evening Ballet and Auction.
The annual event, a staple in Findlay’s performing arts scene, will be held on April 18, 2020, and will feature Neos Dance Theatre. The dancers will once again take the stage at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts.
“The opportunity to perform on a world-class stage in downtown Findlay is exciting,” says Judy Reading, ballet professional at the Findlay Academy of Ballet. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to see professional dancers at their best in a superb environment.”
Proceeds from the event go to the scholarship fund, which provides financial assistance and instruction opportunities for local dancers. Donations to the 501c3 organization may be mailed to the Chance to Dance Foundation, in care of Judy Reading, 7443 Eagle Dr., Findlay, OH 45840.
Major donors to the event include Ohio Logistics, Financial Strategies, Kohl’s, Daniel and Dr. Heide Budke, and Rick and Melanie Mattingly.
