Since​ ​2005,​ ​Pasadena’s​ ​Lineage​ ​Dance​ ​Company​ ​has​ ​been​ ​presenting​ ​​Healing Blue to​ ​raise support​ ​and​ ​awareness​ ​for​ ​breast​ ​cancer​ ​centers​ ​across​ ​the​ ​country.​ ​​ ​The​ ​show​ ​tells​ ​the​ ​true stories​ ​of​ ​women​ ​in​ ​their​ ​struggles​ ​and​ ​triumphs​ ​over​ ​cancer.​ ​​ ​These​ ​stories​ ​form​ ​the​ ​emotional backbone​ ​of​ ​the​ ​night,​ ​and​ ​dive​ ​into​ ​touching,​ ​profound,​ ​and​ ​sometimes​ ​hilarious​ ​aspects​ ​of living​ ​with​ ​an​ ​often​ ​life-threatening​ ​illness.​ ​Each​ ​year​ ​Lineage​ ​brings​ ​new​ ​women’s​ ​stories​ ​to light​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​the​ ​choreography​ ​that​ ​has​ ​been​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​their​ ​words.

This​ ​show​ ​also​ ​marks​ ​a​ ​decade​ ​of​ ​Lineage’s​ ​partnering​ ​with​ ​The​ ​Foundation​ ​For​ ​Living​ ​Beauty, a​ ​nonprofit​ ​organization​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​cancer​ ​support,​ ​whose​ ​clients​ ​are​ ​featured​ ​as​ ​storytellers​ ​in Healing Blue.
