About DAC: Dance Against Cancer was founded in 2010 by Erin Fogarty and Daniel Ulbricht – friends, artists, and children of parents who bravely battled cancer. What started out as a small, black box studio performance has turned into the premier annual dance event to benefit the American Cancer Society. Since its inception, Dance Against Cancer has raised over $2 million for ACS and has featured 307 artists from 36 companies, performing upwards of 130 pieces including world premieres and once-in-a-lifetime collaborations. Lending their time and talent to this unique event, and this rare opportunity to dance together on one stage, hundreds of dancers from all over the world join forces year after year to show the compassion and commitment of the dance community.
