What an incredible year it has been! It felt like every week we were getting new information and guidelines, forcing us to all be on our toes… We are so thankful to have made it through the year in person and couldn’t have done it without the support of all our families. You followed every new guideline thrown at you, without issue or complaint. Being able to welcome you back for live performances and to finally be able to see our young dancers smiling, has made all the hard work worth it. 

 

To close out this year properly, we will be bringing back our annual Gala, so we can celebrate Manhattan Youth Ballet together! To think that we haven’t been able to celebrate together in over 2 years is astonishing. The evening is always very special as our kids get to perform with invited guest dancers from professional companies around the world. This year, we are delighted to honor Ms. Debbie, who has been part of MYB since the beginning. This special evening will feature a raffle and a silent auction, as well as passed hors devours and light refreshments. We will also be bringing back our CAST PARTY! This way all our young dancers will get to enjoy some delicious food while dancing the night away.

 

Our goal is to raise $100,000 between ticket sales, auction items, and contributions. This will ensure we are able to continue to offer over $400,000 in scholarships, multiple performance opportunities, and some of the best training in the world! It will also help to make sure this Gala is unforgettable.
