In celebration of its 5th anniversary as a not-for-profit organization, Ballet des Amériques – the “Ballet of the Americas” – invites patrons of the performing arts to a Masquerade Gala to be held at the Wainwright House in Rye, New York, on Saturday, October 22, 2016, at 6pm. The white tie Gala in the style of a Venetian Masquerade features prominent guest speakers, an exquisite Jazz trio, a silent auction including a wine auction, and offers guests a chance to meet Director and Choreographer Carole Alexis and her company of classically-trained dancers in the elegant atmosphere of this waterfront estate. Wine, refreshments and small bites will be served. The Gala is preceded by company performances at the Music Hall in Tarrytown on October 1 and at Dixon Place in Manhattan on October 18.
Established in 2011 by Director Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques operates both a professional dance company and a pre-professional ballet conservatory in Port Chester, New York.
