The Rock School for Dance Education hosted its 2017 gala and auction at the Independence Seaport Museum on May 5. The school, in its 54th year, trains more than 1,200 dancers at campuses in West Chester and Center City. It also runs RockReach, a dance and movement community outreach program in the Philadelphia region. Guests at the gala enjoyed a performance by students, dinner, and dessert; proceeds will benefit the Rock School scholarship fund.
