    Event Info

    The Gala will honor the career of former New York City Ballet Principal Dancer Joaquin De Luz who was recently appointed Artistic Director of La Compañia Nacional de Danza, the National Dance Company of Spain. Artistic Director Igal Perry will choreograph a new solo on Mr. De Luz for the event.

    The Gala will feature the dynamic dancers of Peridance Contemporary Dance Company, performing an excerpt from Perry’s Perfection Has No Dreams, created in collaboration with composer Ofer Bashan. Over one hundred performers from The School at Peridance, Youth Ensemble, Certificate Program, Faculty, and Alumni will join the Company in this celebration.

    Tickets range from $15 to $120. All tickets include a pre-performance reception in the lobby and admission to the post- performance Summer kick-off party.

    The Company’s 2019 Spring Season was made possible through New York State Council of the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
