NYCB's Dancers Emergency Fund?

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone know why they discontinued these performances? If I recall correctly, it used to be performed the last night of the winter season. It was a program that they tried to feature as many dancers of different ranking as they could and a portion of the ticket sales went to the Fund.

Does anyone have any additional info?

I think they were unsuccessful in selling a sufficient number of tix. Although it was a special program, it was also not subscription (which we cannot forget makes up a large portion of each audience, w/ a few exceptions) and cost more than the usual ticket.

The semiannual Evening with Friends at the Ballet, sponsored by the Business & Professional Committee (next on is Feb. 1, not sure if tix still available-- contact volunteer office), donates proceeds to the Fund. Not quite the same, but still an event that helps contribute
