The Legacy


Dance Against Cancer was founded in 2010 by Erin Fogarty and Daniel Ulbricht. Friends, artists, and children of parents who bravely battled cancer, Erin and Daniel have created a must-see event that brings together artists from leading dance companies from New York City and beyond for a night of performances and world premieres. 

Past performers have included Stella Abrera, Isabella Boylston, Misty Copeland, Herman Cornejo, Gillian Murphy, James Whiteside (American Ballet Theatre), Tyler Angle, Maria Kowroski, Lauren Lovette, Tiler Peck, Taylor Stanley (New York City Ballet), Matthew Rushing and Clifton Brown (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater), Shoshana Bean, Robbie Fairchild, Justin Peck, Wendy Whelan, Ayodele Casel, Michelle Dorrance, Charles "Lil Buck" Riley, BalletX, Jacob Jonas The Company, Paul Taylor Dance Company, and more.
