Thank You To All Who Joined Us To Celebrate Yvonne Mounsey’s Centennial!

This year our fourth annual fundraising gala moved to June when we celebrated our co-founder Yvonne Mounsey’s 100th birthday and the contributions of the Sassounian Family and The Huntley Hotel on June 8th, at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica. We paid tribute to Westside Ballet’s founder with a Centennial Gala honoring the past, present and—most importantly—the future of this community gem, showcasing the company, alumni and guest stars in the masterworks of George Balanchine and Yvonne Mounsey.
