To be a great dancer, its essential to have the ability to control your every movement, from a grand battement to the tiniest lift of a finger. But to be diagnosed with cancer is to feel completely out of touch with your body in an out-of-control universe. Fortunately, overcoming this pervasive illness -- obviously, no small feat -- can help restore order to lives turned upside down. Be a witness to extraordinary strength of will, and of body, when cancer survivors and other dancers put on a program to benefit the Siteman Cancer Center. Moving Voices: An Evening of Dance is co-directed by Dawn Karlovsky, Gail Wechsler and Mary Ann Rund (Wechsler and Rund are both cancer survivors themselves), and all of your $20 ticket cost goes to the cause; call 314-362-7844 to make a purchase. The dance concert is held at the Orthwein Theatre on the campus of Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School (101 North Warson Road, Ladue) at 8 p.m. Saturday and at 4 p.m. Sunday (April 14 and 15). Call 314-727-4453 for more information.
