An Evening with Jacques d'Amboise
With the publication of his autobiographical memoir, "I Was a Dancer", Jacques d'Amboise returns to Wheelock Family Theatre for an intimate evening with fans, friends, patrons, and dance lovers.
Recognized as one of the finest classical dancers of our time, Jacques d'Amboise now leads the field of arts education with a model program that exposes thousands of school children to the magic and discipline of dance. In 1976, while still a principal dancer at the New York City Ballet, Mr. d'Amboise founded National Dance Institute in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage and motivate individuals towards excellence.
Jaques d'Amboise's work in dance education has taken him all over the world—from the extremes of Yakutsk, Siberia, to the Danakil Desert in Ethiopia, from 13,000 feet below sea level at the Dead Sea to the mountains of Nepal, and from the dryness of the Atacama Desert in Chile to rainforests on the island of Kauai in the Hawaiian Chain. Since 1976, NDI programs in New York City and its associate programs, both nationally and internationally, have reached and influenced over 2 million children.
Schedule for the evening:
5:30 p.m. - Reception
6 p.m. - Live, onstage interview with Jared Bowen of WGBH
6:30 p.m. - Audience Q & A
