WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The White Plains Performing Arts Center is set to host the annual Dance Benefit on Jan. 25. 

The 9th annual Friends of the White Plains Youth Bureau’s (FoWPYB) Dance Benefit will start at 7 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center. The ceremony will honor former White Plains School Superintendent Saul Yanofsky and dance choreographer and artistic director Camille Brown. Proceeds from the benefit will support some of the more than 50 programs from the Youth Bureau.

“Our Artistic Honoree Ms. Brown uses dance and theatre to tell stories that connect our past with the present," said FoWPYB President Reva Golkar. "Her thought-provoking dances create a dialogue with the audience, and her dance company’s youth initiative brings the power of dance directly to young audiences. Our Community Honoree Dr. Yanofsky is a well-loved local educator and a zealous advocate for Westchester youth. He has spent a significant amount of time during his career developing initiatives helping our local youth transition from high school to college."

Yanofsky is now the assistant dean of Academic Affairs at Westchester Community College.

"Yanofksy has devoted his career to helping local youth and has played an instrumental role in strengthening the connection between Westchester County’s high schools and colleges," representatives said.

Tickets for the event are $30 and $50 or $100 for premium seating that includes a post-performance VIP reception. Tickets are available at the White Plains Performing Arts Center, 11 City Place in White Plains or at the White Plains Youth Bureau, 11 Amherst Place in White Plains. For more information about the Benefit, residents can contact Golkar at 914-835-3986 or rlgolkar1@verizon.net.
