Danse Avec Clairobscur Fundraiser

by Spot LA


The stars were out in Hollywood last Thursday, November 5th. Literally, the sky was clear and shining bright—and so were the celebrities. The setting was perfect for the “Danse Avec Clairobscur” fundraiser at Aventine on North Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood. Janice Dickinson, The Scheme, MC Raj Sharma, and several other celebrities shone a bright light on both the event and Laurie Sefton’s inspiring issue-based work highlighting climate change on our planet.

The event began with guest DJ Emma Ford spinning an eclectic mix, while celebrities mingled with the press, company dancers, and other guests. Then, almost out of nowhere, a triplet of Mrs. Sefton’s dancers appeared on the center stage. The guests surrounded them in anticipation. What came next was an inspiring array of movement and emotion that left the crowd pondering how to save our planet. This piece has yet to be named, and the finished piece will be premiered in San Francisco in February and Los Angeles in March.

A live auction was performed with great success. And as the silent auction ended, you could see guests prominently showing off their wins. It was an amazing night for an up-and-coming concert dance company in Los Angeles.
