The premiere event of the new En Avant Foundation
Retired Prima Ballerina Cynthia Harvey has established the En Avant Foundation, a new non-profit offering specialized ballet coaching, mentoring and the awarding of scholarships.
Harvey, who was a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre and London’s Royal Ballet, will pull upon her significant network of teachers, directors, choreographers and artists to produce high-caliber master classes and workshops in several cities worldwide in the coming years.
The premiere event will be a master class in New York City on June 7 and 8, featuring Harvey, Edward Villella and Isabelle Guérin as teachers and coaches. A lecture will also be offered on “Overcoming the Stresses of Performance.” Live music will be provided by renowned pianists Steven Mitchell and John Epperson.
