EMERGE125's Renaissance Gala 2024

EMERGE125’s Renaissance Gala 2024

Over the past five years, audience support and trust have provided the foundation necessary to make EMERGE125 one of the country’s fastest growing performance ensembles and Harlem’s foremost dance company. 2024 finds E125 more vital than ever before: expanding into new projects, increasing the size of their ensemble, solidifying much needed executive infrastructure, reaching new audiences in education and the arts, and fully realizing their outsized ambitions.

EMERGE125 is excited to invite guests to their Renaissance Gala 2024: The Making of A Moment, a stage to honor their past, reflect on the present, and celebrate E125’s innovative and audacious future! This black-tie optional event will highlight the recent triumphs of Artistic Director Tiffany Rea-Fisher and give special consideration to the contributions of E125 partners at The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation & The Bay and Paul Foundations. EMERGE125 hopes you will consider joining them at the Renaissance Harlem Hotel for cocktails, dinner, and a live performance from the company. All of E125’s staff and dancers look forward to seeing you there!

EMERGE125 is a Black female-led hub for dance performance, creation, and education. The organization operates dual homes in Harlem and the Adirondacks, New York, while serving audiences both locally and around the world. EMERGE125 has established itself as a leader by setting new standards for dancer care; creating innovative, cross-disciplinary collaborations with leading artists; and using movement as a catalyst for community building: expanding the reach, purpose, and impact of the art of dance. The company has expanded its scope and vision to become a truly 21st Century organization; flourishing, growing, and expanding its network and reach outside of the traditional modern dance sphere. From community dance classes to stadiums filled with thousands of spectators, EMERGE125 demonstrates that modern dance can be accessible and relatable to people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. Artistic Director Tiffany Rea-Fisher was recently named 2024 National Dance Institute Artist-in-Residence; she is also the dance curator for Bryant Park Picnic Performances and the Executive Director of the Adirondack Diversity Initiative.

The Renaissance Gala takes place on April 24, from 6:30-10 pm in the Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance New York Harlem Hotel. Tickets begin at $310. Click here for more information.
