The School of American Ballet benefit

For a truly magical night in NYC there’s little that compares to the The School of American Ballet WINTER BALL. (Remember last years post when I met Carolina Herrera there?). This year, the glamorous annual dinner will be hosted on Monday, March 3, 2014  in Lincoln Center at the David H. Koch Theater. Sponsored for the seventh consecutive year by legendary French Maison Van Cleef & Arpels, cocktails begin at 7pm and dinner will commence at 8pm, followed by The Encore dessert and dancing at 9pm.

A highlight of the evening includes a one-time-only performance by the advanced students of The School of American Ballet choreographed by Silas Farley, selected for the second consecutive year by Peter Martins, Artistic Director and Chairman of Faculty for the School of American Ballet.

This year’s event will be a Starry Night theme, celebrating the School of American Ballet’s 80 years of dedication to the field of ballet. The proceeds from this event enable SAB to distribute $1.8 million annually in student scholarships and support the School’s renowned faculty and state-of-the-art facilities at Lincoln Center.

The School of American Ballet, the official training academy of the New York City Ballet, was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein as the first and most essential step in their quest to create an American classical ballet company.

SAB, located at New York City’s Lincoln Center, is the premier ballet academy in the United States, training more students who go on to become professional dancers than any other school. SAB’s former students fill the ranks of the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies.
