JOSHUA PERFORMS AT "SHUT UP & DANCE" - MARCH 21ST:
For the second year in a row, Joshua will be performing at Manna's annual Shut Up & Dance at the Forrest Theatre in Philadelphia. Shut Up & Dance is a one-night-only benefit performance by Dancers of Pennsylvania Ballet for MANNA. Each year, the Dancers choreograph and perform original pieces for a night of entertainment, inspiration and creativity. In 1992, Dancers of Pennsylvania Ballet were losing loved ones to the HIV/AIDS virus and wanted to do something to help. After hours of brainstorming, they agreed they would do what they do best…they would “shut up & dance”.
Principal dancer Ian Hussey has set original choreography to one of Joshua's songs, and Joshua will be performing the song live alongside the dancers onstage for this one night only event. Get your tickets now, contribute to this wonderful cause, and enjoy a beautiful night of dance and music.
When: Saturday, March 21, 2015
Where: Forrest Theatre, 1114 Walnut Street, Philadelphia
