On October 20, we made history when NYC’s W 89 Street between Amsterdam and Columbus was renamed “Ballet Hispánico Way.” Board Chair Kate Lear, Honorary Chair Jody Gottfried Arnhold, Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro, and Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine delivered impassioned speeches. Other notable attendees included our Board President Michelle Caruso Cabrera and Executive Director of the Office of Arts and Special Projects at the NYC Department of Education Paul Jonathan Thompson who, along with dancers, families, and community members made the celebration extraordinary! Come see the street sign on the corner of W 89th and Amsterdam.
