As Ballet Fantastique‘s intern team dives head-first into planning for the 13-14 season kickoff Gala, they decide to share some behind the scenes thoughts with you about what its been like!


From themes, to location, to drinks and hors d’oeuvres, planning for the 13-14 Season Kickoff Gala: TIMELESS has been both crazy and exciting!

Today, all of us interns went to see the secret location for the Gala, which will be only revealed to ticket holders–in due time. Looking at the space made us excited, yet a little bit worried at the same time.

What worries us the most about our location is that even though it is a beautiful space and we are so thankful to be able to us it, it’s pretty much a blank canvas. Meaning, we will have to somehow get most of the decoration ourselves— and set up— on a very small budget. However, some of us interns also agree that it’s even more exciting that it’s a blank slate, so we can transform the unique space into whatever kind of vision we have!

The intern team all agrees that after months of hard work, and many, many phone calls, we are so excited to present each of the luxury silent auction baskets. We don’t want to give away the swanky auction items, but we can say that some of them will be including destination giveaways!

If you want to know more about the theme of the gala, the intern team created a Pinterest board for inspiration! We wanted to go with a “Made in Manhattan” theme where Mad Men meets Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We are talking about red carpets, sounds of vintage vinyl, champagne, and fad hors d’oeuvres.

We want those who attend the Gala to feel special in some way. Whether that be VIP couches, or getting a sneak peek of season previews from the BFan dancers before anyone else sees Donna and Hannah’s newest choreography.

We’re even thinking about coordinating outfits! Find us interns in pretty black cocktail dresses walking around serving hors d’oeuvres on vinyl vintage records! We hope you decide to come celebrate with us the new season in style with BFan’s artists in the era that never fades!

Mark your calendars! Saturday, Oct. 12 at 8 pm.
