Hugs From Young Choreographers is an annual charity event held at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance main studio. The program is a showcase of original choreographic works by the top level company members of Roswell Dance Theatre (the in-house company at Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance). They present three benefit performances.
The Choreographers select a charity each year that will be the recipient of the funds raised at HUGS. In the past charities have included Family Promise, Foster Care Support Foundation, Erin’s Hope for Friends, Camp Grace, Butterfly Wishes for Ellie, Star House and many, many others. While HUGS weekend is a chance for our Choreographers and their dancers to showcase their talents to the public, through the process they truly learn how much more blessed it is to give than to receive.
