Saratoga En Pointe

Saratoga En Pointe

Saratoga is home to the National Museum of Dance: the only museum in the country dedicated solely to the art of dance, one of few such museums in the world, and site of the only dance specific Hall of Fame—the Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney Hall of Fame. The city's rich dance history is further extended by the presence of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center which has welcomed New York City Ballet each summer for nearly fifty years, and Skidmore College which has a nationally renowned dance program and welcomes world renowned companies and artists annually.

Chosen Artists

The National Museum of Dance has chosen 24 artists of all variety for the upcoming project: Saratoga En Pointe. These 24 artists will decorate 5 foot tall fiberglass pointe shoe sculptures. The final products will be displayed at select locations across the city of Saratoga Springs in the spring of 2013. Artists have been paired with sponsors around the city.
