DANCES FOR DEEANN: A BENEFIT FOR A BROKEN BACK
On May 20th, 2007, Tisch MFA Graduate in Dance deeAnn Nelson suffered a tragic fall in a performance and fractured her spine. She has since come through surgery with flying colors, and a full recovery is expected, though the rehabilitation is going to be long and arduous.
While all of her medical expenses are covered, she will need resources for rent, bills, living etc until she is “back on her feet.” She will be in pins, rods, screws and a brace for the next 6 months then will face an intense program of rehab.As a fierce and talented dancer deeAnn has given her all, for her art. Now, she will need all of the support from her community that she can get.
And the dance community has turned out in droves asking: “How can I help?”
What better way than through a dance concert to bring us together?
An evening of Established and Emerging Artists coming out to help raise funds for an amazing performer.
