Mandarin Hotel Mandarin Hotel2013 Parsons Dance Gala

Welcome to the Mandarin Hotel, a beautiful landmark nestled away in Columbus Circle. This is a night honoring the Board of Trustees of the Harkness Foundation for Dance and hosted by Brent Sidell. An array of delicious hors d’oeuvres, and cocktails circumnavigate the area. It is an honor to speak with dancers and members of the David Parsons Dance Company as they share their experiences.

After a while, guests are escorted into the main ballroom for a an amazing evening filled with dinner, dance performances, a live auction and a wonderful sneak peak into a new routine choreographed by David Parsons. Parsons Dance is a renowned dance company touring internationally in over thirty five countries since 1985.

 As the event comes to an end, I’m left with the thought that it would be an honor to return once more. This is a black-tie event and if you plan to attend next year, make sure to reserve your attendance early in advance and we will see you then.
