TOUCH Selected as Beneficiary of Virtual Hudson Valley Dance Festival

Escape to the cultural heart of the Hudson Valley without ever leaving your living room when the Dancers Responding to AIDS Hudson Valley Dance Festival goes virtual at 7 pm Eastern on Saturday, October 10 with dance made for the moment.

TOUCH is honored to be selected as a beneficiary of the Virtual Hudson Valley Dance Festival! This event will help support TOUCH’s food and nutrition programs for people with HIV and other chronic illnesses at a time of great need. Please share this post and help raise awareness about the event and enjoy the live stream on October 10!

The lineup is set to feature a diverse collection of festival premieres, made-for-the-moment filmed shorts and highlights from past festivals, with choreography by Ayodele Casel, Billy Griffin, Stephen Petronio, Jamar Roberts, Caleb Teicher, Peter Walker and Adam Weinert.

“We’ll miss gathering on the banks of the Hudson River and amid the gorgeous fall foliage, but we’re happy to continue the tradition of sharing breathtaking dance that gives back to and celebrates the Hudson Valley community,” said Denise Roberts Hurlin, founding director of Dancers Responding to AIDS. “In these unprecedented times, we’re thrilled to come together virtually and provide immediate help to those affected by COVID-19, HIV/AIDS and other life crises in the area and across the country.”

The money raised during the Virtual Hudson Valley Dance Festival will help Broadway Cares provide additional, emergency grants to 13 organizations based in the Hudson Valley that are already part of its National Grants Programs, including TOUCH.  Big thanks to  Dancers responding to AIDS and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS!!
