Event Description

The School of American Ballet (SAB) announces the 2015 Winter Ball at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 9, 2015, sponsored by legendary French jeweler, Van Cleef & Arpels for the eighth consecutive year. To purchase tickets, a table, or for more information, contact the Special Events Office at (212) 769-6636.

 

An annual event, the Winter Ball is a glamorous, black-tie dinner dance attended by more than 500 patrons, including the School’s board members and alumni as well as leaders from the New York corporate and social communities. 

 

A highlight of the evening is a performance by the advanced students of The School of American Ballet created specifically for the event.  This year, New York City Ballet dancer Peter Walker was selected as choreographer by Peter Martins, Artistic Director and Chairman of Faculty for SAB.

 

The proceeds from the event enhance every aspect of the School’s extraordinary ballet training program, helping to provide more than $1.9 million annually in student scholarships, as well as supporting faculty, maintaining world-class studios and offering vital student programs beyond the classroom.

 

This year’s Winter Ball will celebrate SAB co-founder George Balanchine’s affinity for the unique spirit and energy of America. Ron Wendt will take inspiration from the influences of the Pop Art era and 70’s revival using color and whimsy to create a fun and festive atmosphere on the David H. Koch Theater’s promenade level.

 

Famed French jeweler, Van Cleef & Arpels, will again act as the lead corporate sponsor for the gala.  This long-standing partnership is a tribute to the friendship shared between SAB founder, George Balanchine, and one of the Van Cleef & Arpels founding brothers, Claude Arpels, who established the Maison in New York in 1939.  Their shared passion for exceptional stones inspired a creative partnership that resulted in Balanchine’s ‘Jewels’ ballet and its sumptuous costumes.

 

The event is led by Chairmen Joyce Giuffra, Julia Koch, Serena Lese, and Laura Zeckendorf; and Young Patron Chairmen Noreen K. Ahmad, Amanda Brotman and Lesley Vecsler. 

 

ABOUT SCHOOL OF AMERICAN BALLET

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.
