A Tribute to Jacques d'Amboise

At the young age of 15, Jacques d’Amboise joined New York City Ballet. As Balanchine’s protégé, Mr. d’Amboise had more works choreographed specifically for him by the Ballet Master than any other dancer. Mr. d’Amboise is most remembered for his portrayal of what critics called “the definitive Apollo.” While still a principal dancer, Jacques d’Amboise founded National Dance Institute (NDI) in 1976 in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage and motivate young people to strive for excellence Mr. d’Amboise traveled all over the world to promote dance education and his unique philosophy of teaching the magic of dance—from the extremes of Yakutsk, Siberia, to rainforests on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. NDI, has been in residence at the Orpheum Theater for many summers teaching local children the joy of creative movement. This tribute to Jacques on Sunday, July 9 is performed by superb dancers from the New York City Ballet and will include signature works danced by Jacque d’Amboise in the past. Join the audience to celebrate the life of this extraordinary dancer and choreographer whose educational program contributes each summer to the lives of so many young people in our community.

“The arts open your heart and mind to possibilities that are limitless. They are pathways that touch upon our brains and emotions and bring sustenance to imagination. Human beings’ greatest form of communication, they walk in tandem with science and play, and best describe what it is to be human.”

—Jacques d’Amboise
