New York, September 15--The Parsons Dance Company presents the inaugural

Thursday evening, October 2, 2003. The Center is located at 566 LaGuardia

7:30pm and is followed by a reception in the Rosenthal Pavilion on the 10th
floor at 8:45pm, with a spectacular view of Washington Square Park. All

The opening celebration's program will feature signature works of

Company will be joined by American Ballet Theatre's principal dancer, Angel
Corella, in his debut in the masterwork, Caught, and New York City Ballet's
principal dancer, Jenifer Ringer, performing a romantic adagio, On A Clear
Night, with Mr. Parsons.

This will be a unique opportunity to experience the first performance by a
dance company in the City's newest state-of-the-art performing arts center.
New York University's Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts is
downtown Manhattan's newest performance space. Designed by architect Kevin
Roche and theater designer Artec Consultants, Inc., this beautiful and
intimate 865-seat theater offers first-rate capabilities for dance, music
and new media performance. The Skirball Center is not only a space for NYU
productions and events, but also for performing arts events from around the
world that can bring unique value to the University, Greenwich Village and
the city.

Skirball Center Executive Director, Wiley Hausam expressed his gratitude to
David Parsons and the company for participating in the opening of the new
theater: "The Parsons Dance Company is one of the most delightful. We're
so pleased that they are bringing together these classic pieces and these
beautiful guest artists Angel Corella and Jenifer to Ringer. We know it
will be a very special evening."

In a recent interview David Parsons expressed his gratitude to be invited as
a featured artist: "I am honored and delighted to be part of the official
opening celebration of the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts,
a stimulating addition to New York's rich cultural environment. The dancers
of The Parsons Dance Company are also very excited about this opportunity,
and I am personally gratified to have the international superstar Angel
Corella dance Caught and the elegant, beautiful ballerina, Jenifer Ringer,
perform the duet On A Clear Night with me."
