On April 7, 2014, Ballet Hispanico raised more than $1 million at its Gala in support of the company’s artistic and educational work in New York City and around the country. During the evening, Ballet Hispanico proudly honored the Ford Foundation with the Civic Inspiration Award.
Close to 400 guests in attendance also received the exclusive announcement of a $1.5 million grant from long-time supporter the Ford Foundation.
This year’s Gala, themed “Community Partnerships through the Arts,” featured live music from the two-time GRAMMY® winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra along with performances by the Ballet Hispanico Company and students of the Ballet Hispanico School of Dance.
The evening included an exclusive sneak peek of original costumes created by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez for choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s stunning new work El Beso, which was premiered by Ballet Hispanico at the Company’s New York Season at the Joyce Theater on April 15-27.
Key attendees included Event Chairs Jody and John Arnhold, Kate Lear and Jonathan LaPook, and David Pérez and Milena Alberti, as well as Gala Honorary Committee co-chair Angel Sanchez.
