American Repertory Ballet Annual Gala

Saturday March 9, 2019
6:00 PM

American Repertory Ballet (ARB) will host its annual gala, "An Enchanted Castle Soirée," inspired by the company's world premiere of Beauty and the Beast, on Saturday, March 9, at 6:00 pm at the Pines Manor in Edison, N.J. Guests will enjoy a French inspired ambiance, silent auction, dinner and dancing alongside artists of American Repertory Ballet. Award-winning radio broadcaster Bert Baron, host of "Jersey Central with Bert Baron," on WCTC (1450AM) will be the Master of Ceremonies.

The primary goal of the fundraiser is to raise money for ARB's merit and need-based scholarship program, which awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships last year. The fundraiser will also enable the organization to present professional ballet productions such as a world premiere of Kirk Peterson's Beauty and the Beast and American Made: Paul Taylor and Other Works, which will be performed this spring in New York City. This year's gala will honor Christine Zoffinger and Joshua Zinder Architecture + Design (JZA +D) for their outstanding and longtime support of the arts, and Erika Mero, the recipient of the 2019 Audrée Estey Award for Excellence in Dance Education.
