Luna Negra Dance Theater’s annual Noche de Luna Gala was a stunning performance.
The moon may have been shrouded by rainclouds, but that didn’t stop the Luna Negra Dance Theater from hosting its annual Noche de Luna gala on Sept. 13. More than 400 guests filled two floors of Venue Six10 (610 S. Michigan) as they sipped cocktails, admired the new Mercedes-Benz E550 and watched dancers do improvised choreography on the stairs and across the floor. The evening also included the Luna de Honor Awards, which recognized DanceWorks Chicago founder Pam Crutchfield and the Chicago Community Trust for their longtime support. The dancers’ moves swayed the crowd, helping the gala garner over $230,000 for the theater’s outreach and dance programs.
