In addition to the above conference, etc at Harvard, there is an even bigger, broader celebration in Boston in May.

This link to BR2009 (Ballet Russes 2009) will take you to tons of info about a conference, performances (mostly orchestral) and even a Parade!!!!

This means I have to go to Boston twice!! Hmmm this is during NYCB Spring Season. Oh dear.
