THE 75TH ANNUAL AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE GALA

The 75th Annual American Ballet Theatre Gala

Jackie Watson, the French Reporter, stumbled onto the red carpet at the 75th Annual American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) special event gala in Los Angeles, CA.

The ABT gala was held in celebration of the iconic American institution that has brought dance to America and American dance to the world. The event, which offered a unique way to experience the magic of ballet, supports the company’s ongoing programs, productions and performances. 

Jackie, whilst in perfect dress, failed to bring her ballet slippers, thus causing her to slip heavily upon the velvety red carpet. The fall, however, did not deter her from dancing marvelously into the presence of some of our favorite celebrities and capturing a few quick interviews.

Jackie waltzed into conversation with Nigel Lythgoe, an English television and film director and producer, television dance competition judge, former dancer in the Young Generation, and choreographer. She also flew into graceful chat with Mick Jagger’s ballerina girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick.

Actress Lesley Ann Warren was amongst the dancing interviewee’s, as was Kym Johnson, an Australian professional ballroom dancer, model, television personality, and Founder of 5678 Fitness. 

Jackie twirled up some dialogue with model and actress Eva LaRue and Misty Copeland, one of American Ballet Theatre’s most infamous ballet dancers. 

James Whiteside, Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre, was also in attendance. He graciously conversed with Jackie, sharing his expertise and offering some insight into the everyday rehearsals of the ABT’s dancers. 

It was truly a magical event, filled with all the pomp, glamour and beauty that one would expect of such an elegant affair. We were glad to be a part of American Ballet Theatre’s spectacular event.
