Hollywood showstoppers take center stage at The Cowles Center's annual GOTTA DANCE! Gala and Raze the Barre After Party on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Our City of Stars will be shining bright at the Silver Screen Soirée as we pay homage to the magic of the movies. Get red carpet ready and join us for a night fit for the likes of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

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 600 guests will join us to raise funds for our education and access programs. Special this year, the Fund-A-Need will highlight our longstanding partnership with ProAct/New Options, a day program dedicated to supporting differently abled adults in the Twin Cities metro. Raise your bidder numbers high to ensure that dance experiences are accessible to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.


Day-of Raze the Barre After Party tickets will be available at the door beginning at 9:00 PM for $100
