On this occasion of New York City Ballet’s 70th anniversary, as we reflect on the Company’s past achievements and look toward the future, we take a moment to reaffirm the words that were so eloquently expressed by our dancers in a powerful statement delivered to the audience at a recent performance in our Lincoln Center home.
“New York City Ballet dancers are standard bearers on the stage and we strive to carry that quality, purity, and passion in all aspects of our lives. … We are inspired by the values essential to our art form: dignity, integrity, and honor.”
We are proud to stand today on seven decades of excellence, with a renewed commitment to uphold the values that this institution holds dear. To ensure an environment where not only creativity, but dedication and respect are nurtured and thrive, and to embody the ideals of strength and grace that are displayed nightly on our stage. We will endeavor in this charge to be a leader in our industry.
Thank you to our patrons whose support has been unwavering. It continues to be our privilege to share the beauty and the joy that is New York City Ballet.
