Join Us for Pointe’s “Tutu” Anniversary Celebration in NYC!
It’s our 22nd anniversary, and we couldn’t be happier that it falls in 2022—the year of the tutu!
On Saturday, June 11, we’re celebrating with a full-day event for all ages, including a morning full of master classes, followed by an afternoon walking tour of NYC’s historic dance landmarks. Then, join us for an early evening celebration at the New York Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, where we’ll raise a toast to 22 years of ballet at its best!
