Be a part of ballet history! On Monday, August 2nd hundreds of ballerinas will descend upon New York’s Central Park in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “The Most Ballerinas On Pointe” at one time. All ballet dancers age 13 and up–and their pointe shoes–are encouraged to join in. The goal is to have 1,000+ dancers (current record is 220) standing en pointe for one minute. Special hosts include Michele Wiles (principal dancer) and Craig Salstein (soloist) of American Ballet Theatre, and every little girl’s favorite dancing mouse, Angelina Ballerina.
Participants are asked to donate $10 which benefits the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club Dance Program.
