Annual Luncheon

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

This year's 2020 Annual Luncheon: Modern Masters focused on how NYCB's founder George Balanchine broke down barriers between classical ballet and modern dance through an exchange of ideas with visionary choreographers like Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. His innovative exploration of incorporating other dance genres continues to be a hallmark of the work presented by the Company today. Through performance, demonstration, and interviews with past and present NYCB artists, we explored Balanchine's legacy and how it paved the way for many of today's choreographic voices as they push ballet into new and daring directions.

We hope you will join us next year for the 2021 Annual Luncheon.
