The Good Pointe Society, Rochester City Ballet’s young professionals group, will host its Black and White Masquerade Ball from 8 to 11 p.m. March 4 at Artisan Works, 565 Blossom Road, Rochester.
All proceeds support the dancers at Rochester City Ballet.
Tickets include unlimited wine and beer provided by Constellation Brands, dessert by Hedonist Artisan Chocolates and Ice Cream, hors d’oeuvres, dancing and music by DJ Flex.
“Proceeds from this event help us retain talent here in our community,” said David Palmer, RCB artistic director.
GPS was founded in 2010 to increase visibility among young professionals for RCB and create a platform to promote and educate work both onstage and throughout the community.
“The Good Pointe Society’s goal is to create high quality events for Rochester’s younger professionals,” said Meghan McGuire, RCB board member and GPS co-chairman. “Over the past few years, Masquerade Ball has become GPS’s signature event, but we really love that it is supported and attended by Rochesterians of all ages.”
Tickets cost $60 in advance, $70 at the door and $500 for a group of 10. The event is for ages 21 and older.
“The Masquerade Ball is a great excuse to get dressed up and attend a top-notch party,” said Nichole Gantshar, executive director. “We’ve seen attendees in beautiful ball gowns, cocktail dresses and suits and always exquisite masks. It’s a special event to where you can dance and mingle with both friends and RCB company members for a fun evening.”
