On Saturday, March 21st, The Lady Hoofers took the stage at the Forrest Theater to help raise money and awareness for the non-profit organization MANNA. Hosted every year by the Pennsylvania Ballet, this philanthropic event brings together brilliant professional dance companies in the Philadelphia community while educating audience members of MANNA's mission: to prepare and deliver nourishing meals and counsel to people at acute nutritional risk due to life-threatening illness.
Fellow performers included BalletX, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, and University of the Arts School of Dance. The Lady Hoofers performed A Little Party, danced by Katie Budris, Johanna Lockwood, Deedee Mann, and Becky Mastin. Check out the pictures below to get a glimpse of an amazing performance!
