The School of American Ballet’s

For Scholarships and School Programs
at the David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 14, 2016
The School of American Ballet’s 2016 Winter Ball took place at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 14, 2016 and raised nearly $1.2 million. Legendary French jeweler, Van Cleef & Arpels sponsored the glamorous, black-tie dinner dance for the ninth consecutive year. The evening began with cocktails at 7pm and dinner at 8pm, followed by a student performance choreographed specially for the occasion, and The Encore dessert and dancing. The proceeds from the event enhance every aspect of the School’s extraordinary ballet training program, including helping to provide $2 million annually in student scholarships, as well as supporting faculty, maintaining world-class studios and offering vital student programs beyond the classroom.
“SAB is grateful to our sponsor Van Cleef & Arpels, our wonderful event chairs and all the generous attendees for a successful evening, which raised over $1.1 million for the School’s scholarship and student life programs,” said Margie Van Dercook, executive director of the School of American Ballet.
This glamorous annual dinner dance was attended by 500 patrons, including the School’s board members and alumni as well as leaders from the New York corporate and social communities.
