It was a beautiful night full of dance, art, friends, and family. The 2015 premiere from Tiffany Rea-Fisher, why so curious?, the long-awaited revival of Elisa Monte's Feu Follet, and an audience favorite, Terra Firma, made for an enchanting evening. The show was followed by a beautiful gala, directed by co-chairs Paul Ukena and Matthew Fisher, upstairs at Ailey Citigroup. Dark blues, crisp whites, and elegant silvers set the tone for the exquisite evening; priceless artworks and unique fashion pieces were raffled off to EMD supporters throughout the dinner; and fun and merriment was had by all. Thank you to everyone who helped make EMD's 34th Gala night unforgettable!
