A starry night, a winter ball, a celebration of The School of American Ballet‘s 80 years of dedication to the field of ballet...under the golden roof of Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater, former ballet dancers, patrons, alumni, board members, corporate and social communities gathered to raise money to provide student scholarships as well as to maintain the school’s state of the art facilities and faculty. The School of American Ballet was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein with a dream of creating the American classical ballet company, which is today the premier ballet academy in the United States, training the highest of elite dancers at the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies.
In a room full of gowns, we sipped on cocktails, dined on classic American fare with tables aglow with starbursts and watched a beautiful performance by the advanced students of the school, choreographed by Silas Farley. It was a dazzling night, but when is it not when it’s made of ballet dreams and Lincoln Center sparkle?…
Feeling like Swan Lake, I wore a three tier ballet-pink gown with black lace overlay by Tadashi Shoji…

You look stunning Jamie! And those gorgeous emerald green dresses are just so mesmerizing! xx
these photos gave me the goosebumps. i have always found the ballet to be one of the most beautiful art forms, and seeing the dancers against the starry backdrops is pure magic.
Same here. It’s beyond beautiful, something I hope to photograph in more depth one day.
