Bohemian Heat – Saturday  August 3rd at 7:30PM & Sunday August 4th at 2PM

Bohemia Heat is a mixed repertory concert which was inspired when Boca Ballet Theatre’s Co-Artistic Director Dan Guin attended a concert at the Southeast Ballet Association where he was “blown away” by new choreographers Ashlie Wells and Kassandra Taylor Newberry’s piece, Bohemian Rhapsody. Along with this beautiful piece we are planning to present an interesting and exciting blend of classical and contemporary pieces including: excerpts from Ramonda choreographed by Dan Guin after the original version; the David Parsons masterpiece Caught and David Parsons comedic Sleep Study.

There is something for everyone as Bohemian Heat explores the different genres of dance

Cocktails, Silent Auction, Dinner & Program!

They will be transforming Jonathan’s Landing Clubhouse, Jupiter, into our very own Emerald City!

We all recall the pivotal scene in the Wizard of Oz where the Good Witch Glenda gently leads Dorothy in the mantra, “There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home…” Dorothy’s yearning for home is like that of the children we serve through the Guardian ad Litem Program.

As the exclusive non-profit support of our local Guardian ad Litem Program, our mission is to provide 100% one-on-one child advocacy through the 600+ Volunteer Child Advocates serving more than 1,700 abused, abandoned, and neglected children in our county.

As a Guest, Sponsor or a Silent Auction Donor to There’s No Place Like Home Fall Gala you are helping us impact as many children’s lives as possible here at home.

Every child deserves a loving home, a warm bed, and the comforting arms of a caring loved one.  You can help every child live this reality as they repeat the heartfelt affirmation, “There’s no place like home.”
