We are grateful to our individual and institutional donors for your generosity in supporting our dancer comeback in spring 2021!
Our Company’s COVID-safe bubble residency was held at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Massachusetts from April 19 to May 1, 2021. Company dancers reconditioned, rehearsed, and learned new works in the bubble! Following completion of the bubble residency, online rehearsals will continue remotely and in-person rehearsals in the studio will begin again in August in our NYC hometown. Next up, a new Company documentary, Ballet Boys, will premiere on PBS’s “American Masters” on June 4; our three-week NY home season at the Joyce Theater is planned for December 2021; and a rigorous domestic and international tour will kick off in January 2022.
Thank you again to all of our contributors for your incredible support of this campaign! We met our goal and raised just over $150,000 in new funds for the company’s return to the live stage in 2021.
