School of American Ballet


Last night was the School of American Ballet‘s Winter Ball in the David H. Koch theater of Lincoln Center. It was a very special night for Kevin and I as for the past couple of months we have been working closely with the team at SAB making a series of ballet cinemagraphs as well as a short film on the lives of SAB students to be shown here on this evening to the distinguished guests that donated / raised over a million dollars last night to aid in the scholarships that allow less fortunate students full of talent to attend this world class school.

It’s not often we get to experience our work “out in the world” or be present when someone sees it for the first time. It was a thrill! Walking into the gallery under dancing cinemagraphs delighting the guests in perfect poise and flawless execution was so charming and I felt, as I sat there, very respectful the discipline and study of dance. It was a great honor to be in the professional position to donate our time and talent to support something we greatly believe in, the arts, and to which we relate as far as the student experience is concerned- coming to New York with a dream and a whole lot of passion.


So honored to wear this gorgeous Ralph Lauren silk gown, diamond earrings by the event’s main sponsor Van Cleef & Arpels and a clutch by the the Winter Ball’s event co-chair Amanda Brotman from her evening bag line Amanda Pearl 

(remember the last time I wore a Ralph Lauren gown in Paris…)

  1. Jamie, you and Kevin have come so far and have accomplished so much over the years. Being able to witness your work on display at such a grand event amongst respectable artists and peers must have been such a moment of pride for the both of you. You are living proof that following your heart and passion is the most rewarding path.

    And can we talk some more about how beautiful you look and that Ralph Lauren gown you are wearing?! It is absolute perfection, as though it were made for you! <3
