Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center Evening of Tango
The tango collaboration melded the talents of two superb dancers with two electrifying musicians.
It always amazes me to see the power and grace of top ballet dancers in rehearsal, then to see the performance in which their practiced, precise partnering makes all look effortlessly fluid and often gravity defying. Pairing their bodies- their lithe instruments- with the musicians’ instruments, with the beat, never missing a beat, left the audience focused laser-like on their performance. The smaller stage was an artistic challenge that was ably met.
A ticket to each of the remaining Art Dinners is $175, and to this evening’s audience, was well worth it. What’s to follow?
Wednesday, December 1, will take you to Italy for “An Evening of Opera,” with rising stars from the Juilliard School and wonderful Italian cuisine by Chef and owner Carlo Rao of Mastello’s Restaurant and Touch of Italy.
Saturday, May 7, 2011, will be a Kentucky Derby Celebration, with music by an authentic New Orleans Jazz Band and Cajun cuisine by Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
Each dinner will begin with a Champagne Reception at 6:00 pm and end with the Silent Auction Finale. (Note: May 7 dinner begins at 5:30 pm.) Tickets are $175 per person, or guests may choose from four levels of sponsorship which include dinner tickets. Terat yourself to a magical evening!
