Monday, October 16th, is World Food Day.
World Food Day is celebrated each year to mobilize global awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger. 
I'm planning a very unique event with Food Tank in New York City in partnership with Broadway Stars as we “Dance for Hurricane Recovery!”

One hundred percent of ticket revenue is supporting food relief for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean via #GiveHealthy and Feeding America, which are providing emergency assistance to Puerto Rico. The World Food Program USA is supporting emergency assistance in Dominica.
The event is being held in NYC at the Union Square Ballroom on Monday, Oct 16 from 5:30PM-7:00PM.

I created Garjana, a completely original, fully immersive dance workout led by Broadway stars—from the casts of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Margaritaville,” “Aladdin,” “Memphis,” “Wicked,” and more. Garjana features all-original music by Toronto based producer Douglas Romanow, whose credits include Justin Bieber and Tyga, spun by DJ Will Buck, whose credits range from Florence + The Machine to Method Man. We created this concept with award winning film director Kevin Arbouet as our artistic director and Broadway's Monica Kapoor as our choreography. 
Garjana has been selling out major venues in NYC as an “alternative happy hour.” And it has garnered incredible media coverage from BillboardPlaybill Magazine, The New York Times, Time Out Magazine, and more.

The event on October 16th also features dance performances by Dance in Tribeca, NYC Bollywood Funk, Learn Bhangra, Lotus Creations Academy of Performing Arts, Broadway Bodies, and Fit4Dance along with terrific snacks and beverages donated by Great Performances along with additional donations from Peeled Snacks, Elisa's Love Bites Dessert Atelier, Dang Foods, Icelandic Glacial Water, Gotham Greens, Emmy's Organics, Pacari: Premium Organic Chocolate, Rhythm Superfoods, GT's Kombucha, Body & Soul Vegan Bakery, REBBL, & Pipcorn.

Here is a 60-second video highlighting the experience (from a recent sold-out event at the Highline Ballroom).
We are organizing this event in collaboration with World Food Program USA, which supports the mission of the United Nations World Food Programme, the leading humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. By mobilizing individuals, lawmakers and businesses in the U.S. to advance the global movement to end hunger, we bolster an enduring American legacy of feeding families in need around the world.
