WHAT: Boston Ballet, one of the world’s leading dance companies, hosts its annual fundraising event on Saturday, March 6, 2010 at The Castle at Park Plaza. Black, White & Brilliant promises to be a sophisticated and edgy evening, which will highlight the talents of Boston Ballet’s company dancers in three extraordinary, one-night-only performances. Following dinner, a silent and live auction, and the performances, guests themselves will hit the dance floor. The event will also feature a special after-party hosted by the Young Partners of Boston Ballet, which is open to Young Partners members and friends, as well as Black, White & Brilliant guests.
The evening is a tribute to Henri and Belinda Termeer, long-standing supporters of Boston Ballet whose community leadership and generous contributions were instrumental in the opening of Boston Ballet School’s fourth studio location on the North Shore. All proceeds from Black, White & Brilliant benefit Boston Ballet and its work on stage, in the studio, and in the community. The participation of Altieri Events, Max Ultimate Food, Barefoot Wines, Winston Flowers and Be Our Guest Party Rentals makes this the event of the season.

Since 1963, Boston Ballet has been one of the leading dance companies in the world on stage, in the studio and in the community. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen and Executive Director Barry Hughson, the Company maintains an internationally acclaimed repertoire and the largest ballet school in North America, Boston Ballet School.
Boston Ballet maintains a repertoire of classical, neo-classical and contemporary works, ranging from full-length story ballets to new works by some of today's finest choreographers. Boston Ballet's second company, Boston Ballet II, is comprised of pre-professional dancers who gain experience by performing with the Company and independently, presenting lecture-demonstrations and special programs to audiences throughout the Northeast.
Boston Ballet School, the official school of Boston Ballet, has a long-standing dedication to excellence and access and reaches more than 10,000 students ages 2-adult each year through Boston Ballet School classes, Summer Dance Workshop, Summer Dance Program, Citydance, Taking Steps, and Adaptive Dance. The wide array of dance programs are held at four studio locations in Boston, Newton, Norwell and Marblehead, as well as community centers and in Boston Public Schools.
