On October 30 and 31, the second annual Dancers Love Dogs charity performance will take place at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre and once again the audience can look forward to an entertaining evening featuring top dancers and performers collaborating towards the mass sterilization of dogs in and around Durban’s rural areas and townships, where this treatment is not affordable.

Brigitte Reeve-Taylor (Founder), together with Leigh Meyer (Durban Show Organizer) have again enlisted voluntary assistance from like-minded people within their broad networks. Through their appeals, several dance companies and studios in Durban will be participating in this performance, generously giving of their time without charge and the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre has also offered the venue at no cost.

The performance will showcase works by Durban’s Top Dance Company, The best of Durban’s Dance Studios, as well as performances by Durban’s favourite theatre personalities, Shelley Mclean, Melanie Roberts, Marion Loudon, Lisa Bobbert, Liesl Coppin, Evan Roberts and Take 5, just to name a few.

Since 2012, Dancers Love Dogs has also been staged in Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria and the events have cumulatively raised R500,000 which has allowed for 1,500 animals to be safely sterilized to date, with the work continuing regularly. Dancers Love Dogs has also been registered as a non-profit organization, securing crucial NPO status that enables corporates to donate, with incentives.

Dancers Love Dogs performances take place on October 30 and 31 at 19h30 at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. Tickets R100 booked through Computicket. 100% of the proceeds will go towards the sterilization of dogs. A raffle will be held on the night with great prizes to be won, donated by several sponsors. Anyone unable to attend the show may also make a donation to this very worthy cause. Email for banking details and more information or call 071 381 7642.
