2017 Dance Festival Rehearsal

The Nantucket Atheneum Dance Festival is a major fundraising event for the Nantucket Atheneum, which must raise 75% percent of its operating budget through special events and private donations.

In 2017, we were joined by dancers from New York City Ballet, Miami City Ballet and Boston Ballet, who delivered two, phenomenal, 10th anniversary performances with live music for full-house audiences!

Additional highlights from the week included our lineup of free community events:

  • Benjamin Millepied’s Reset
  • Youth Master Classes
  • Interactive Program. Exploring Aspects of Performance: 3 Eras – 3 Artists – 3 Roles
  • Children’s Performance & Program
