You may have missed last year's performance but you won't want to do that this year.

In addition to an amazing show with new dance pieces, there's even more again this year... The Black Ivy Alumni League invites ticket holders to our own Pre-Theatre Wine, Hors d'Oeuvres and Networking Reception held at New York City Center's special VIP Lounge.

We will enjoy a private pre-performance reception with substantial hors d'oeuvres and an open wine bar sponsored by Heritage Link Brands -- the exclusive distributors of the House of Mandela wines in the U.S. -- and of course complete with the holiday spirit brought to you by the Black Ivy Alumni League!

Purchase your tickets today. The fantastic wine, hors d'oeuvres and networkng reception is included in the ticket price and seats are limited!

Please note that due to the limited nature of the tickets, purchases are non-refundable.
