scan of a program insert at NYCB last night regarding the presentation of the 2011 Jerome Robbins Award, Sep. 30.
some snaps made at the curtain call, fuzzy at best, show the stage from the orchestra level, theater right.
the statuette signifying the award is on the extreme left, with Chita Rivera at the lectern, and some of the 26 dancers who were given the award - four were given posthumously - can be seen in the line-up beneath the projected photo of Robbins.
(all the living awardees were in attendance.)

Thanks so much for the photos, rg - what a remarkable line up.

Chita Rivera introduced them in reverse order of the year they joined NYCB.

They came out from the right wing to the left - left to the right.

That monster head is blocking Ansanelli, Weese, Alexopoulos, Whelan and Lopez.

On the right side it's Nichols, Roy(blond bob), Kistler, Boree, Tracy, Ringer, Kowroski.

the four women on the far right, from the right moving left, are:
Kowroski, Ringer, Tracey, and Kistler, whose usually long hair was shorter than usual for this occasion.
i'm not sure whose next, going to the left, Borree?, then Roy, as confirmed here, and Nichols and so on.

Thanks, RG, for the photos and scans.

There are a few good photos on Facebook. I am not sure if that link will work. It says "by New York City Ballet" on the page. I don't know how to use facebook (I'm surprised they let me on!) so I hope that link gets you through.
