We are thrilled to invite you to join us for our 2024 Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, February 13. This special afternoon, which is a highlight of the City’s winter social calendar, begins at 11 AM and features a dynamic onstage program moderated by Donya Archer Bommer, followed by an elegant seated luncheon on the Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater.
As Cinderella’s slippers played a central role in her story, pointe shoes are vital to a ballerina’s performance and her magical gravity defying grace; sneakers give a dancer freedom and flow; and tap shoes rap a rhythm to syncopated steps. Shoes lay the groundwork for New York City Ballet’s repertory of 400-plus works, created over the past 75 years. At this year’s Annual Luncheon, shoes take center stage as we explore the formidable footwear our dancers use to elevate their movement. Discover how pointe shoes are made, how young dancers learn to dance in them, and how professionals prepare them. We will also look at the variety of shoes worn for our ballets, from heels to sneakers to slippers, and explore the relationship between a dancer and their shoes.
