La Revue – A Night at the Moulin Rouge

2018 GOTTA DANCE! Gala
and Raze the Barre After Party

You are invited to join us on Saturday, October 6, 2018, for our largest fundraising event of the year — The GOTTA DANCE! Gala and Raze the Barre After Party. This year’s gala theme, La Revue — A Night at the Moulin Rouge, will be an evening of can-can and cabaret. With plenty of spectacle and surprise, guests will be transported to turn-of-the-century Paris during this belle soirée.

This vibrant celebration is known for being one of the most exciting and hotly anticipated fundraisers in the Twin Cities. Guests are immersed in the evening surrounded by elements of dance from start to finish. Craft cocktails, gourmet food, one-of-a-kind auction packages, and a dance party like no other are just a few of the highlights.

This year’s event will be held at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center. More than 500 guests will join us to raise funds to help support our education and access programs, ensuring that dance experiences are accessible to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds — no matter their ability to pay.


Two different ticket packages are available for this event. Below are those details.
