There was a big dance party on Hennepin yesterday.
Mayor R.T. Rybak and other public officials danced at the "Rally for the Shubert" to support efforts to raise the $2 million needed to break ground on the Shubert Performing Arts Center. To date, more than $36.2 million has been raised for the project. The fundraising goal is $41 million.
Event organizers recognized the labor unions, corporate and arts partners, among others, who have supported the Shubert. Once complete, the center will be the region's premier center for dance.
