Organized by the museum’s director, Dr. Valerie Steele, and set in a dramatic mise-en-scène created by architect Kim Ackert, Dance & Fashion will feature nearly 100 dance costumes and dance-inspired fashions, ranging from the 19th century to the present, many of which have never been exhibited.” The tour will be followed by a luncheon at ilili, hosted by CFDA member and YAGP Board member B Michael and American Ballet Theatre’s newest Principal Dancer, YAGP Alumna Isabella Boylston.
