On Monday, our favorite dancing mouse, Angelina Ballerina, will lend her support to hundreds of ballerinas in Central Park, in a Guinness World Records attempt for Most Ballerinas En Pointe." Ballet dancers age 13 and up can be part of this record-breaking event, called Break the Ballet Record, to support awareness for dance. Even if your kids are too young to join the record--why not witness this spectacle!
Some of ballets most elite dancers will join the attempt, including ABT Principal Dancer Michele Wiles who will serve as the events host, and ABT Soloist Craig Salstein who will direct the dancers in dance steps leading up to the moment they stand en pointe. In addition, participants from the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club AB Stars program will perform with Angelina Ballerina and host an Angelina Ballerina-themed childrens activity area during the event. Proceeds from the gathering will benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club performing arts program, a partner of the newly launched Angelina Ballerina Stars of Tomorrow campaign.
