Una Thurman, Ashlee Simpson, Sigourney Weaver, Star Jones, Bridget Kelly, Alex Wek and Coco Rocha were among the celebrities to welcomed the American Ballet Theatre Season opening gala at Lincoln Center, New York City. 

Although these stars can’t demi-point like a professional ballerina, they put their best foot forward in supporting this world-renowned company.  

This event marked ABT’s commitment to bring the best of not only ballet but also dance theatre to NY with slated presentations from Don Quixote to Onegin.

Founded in 1937 ABT is the umbrella of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School and in 2006 the United States congress recognized the ballet company as  "America's National Ballet Company".

According to Rachel Moore ABT’s CEO, next year will bring bigger and broader things like possible touring to Australia and Abu Dhabi.

The American Ballet Theatre season runs for eight weeks, opening on May 13, 2013 and concluding on July 6th, 2013.
