Vision Gala


The Vision Gala is a two-part extravaganza featuring our ‘Dessert in the Dark‘ experience and ‘See Inside Me‘ dance production. What could possibly be better than an evening of dessert, dancing and making a difference? All proceeds will be donated to CNIB to help those living with full and partial vision loss.
Dessert in the Dark: Not Just Dessert!

Have you ever heard the rumor that darkness helps to elevate your other senses? At ‘Dessert in the Dark’, you will get to ‘experience’ delicious sweet creations… without the aid of sight! You will ‘see’ taste in a whole new way, as you savor texture, aroma and flavor as never before. Navigating this experience may prove more difficult than expected. Simple tasks, such as locating the dessert on your plate, will become more challenging. This dessert will give you just a taste of some of the struggles people living with vision loss deal with on a day-to-day basis. Dessert-in-the-Dark

‘See Inside Me’ Production: A Journey Chronicling the Power of Dance

After dessert, you will be treated to an hour-long emotionally-charged dance production featuring our international stars and local talent. The shows will take you on an inspirational journey telling the story of Nikki,  a young woman living with vision loss. Experience her joys, triumphs, heartaches, and struggles as she grows beyond the challenges of living as a blind woman.

The Gala will showcase Kadu & Larissa, Jordan & Tatiana, and the Vision Dancers: the world’s first blind and partially sighted Brazilian Zouk dancers. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an unforgettable evening. You have never seen a show like this!
