To quote singer Van Morrison, "it’s a marvelous night for a moondance" when Dance Institute of The University of Akron presents "Moonlight Serenade" for Pointe to the Future 2013, a benefit on Saturday, March 23, at UA's E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall.


UA jazz pianist Joe Augustine and dancers from the Dance Institute will entertain guests throughout the evening on the moonlit stage. Cocktails and auctions begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m.
