Arch Ballet hosted their Making Waves Summer Benefactor Party this past Wednesday, August 15 at Fashion Bar to toast to their rising achievements of 2018 thus far. The neon pink LED touches and palm tree leaves were a chic compliment to the New York Fashion Week artwork that covered the walls of this Vogue worthy cocktail bar.
The soirée was post performance of their World Premiere ballet REM. Conversation was bustling with compliments about the troupe’s talented dancers and vision of it-girl choreographer Sheena Annalise, between the stories of juicy Hampton’s weekend trip shenanigans.
Between all the conversation, champagne glass clinking, and auction bidding, the event raised vital funds for Arch Ballet’s next creations. The buzz around the party was that it has to do with neuroscience, but the choreographer herself wasn’t ready to reveal when asked for comment. Patrons “in the know” of the behind the scenes though, can’t help but to spill some of the excitement.
We will have to follow them @archballet to see what the secrecy is all about.
Host committee members of the evening were Gerald Appelstein, David Ballinger, Avishan Bodjnoud, Nicholas D’Angelo, Bryan Hale, Scott Jeffrey, Marija Pecar, Edda Santiago, and Jeff Vockrodt.
