Vacheron Constantin Announces Three Year Partnership with New York City Ballet

Vacheron Constantin is pleased to announce a new partnership with New York City Ballet as the leading corporate sponsor of the Company’s annual Spring Gala for the next three years. The 2013 Spring Gala was held on Wednesday, May 8.

Supporting creativity is an intrinsic value of Vacheron Constantin and a guiding principle behind the company’s many activities ever since Jean-Marc Vacheron opened his workshop in Geneva in 1755. The sponsorship of New York City Ballet underlines Vacheron Constantin’s consistent and enthusiastic support of fine arts and expanding commitment to the New York City community.

Co-founded by legendary choreographer George Balanchine in 1948, the New York City Ballet quickly rose to international acclaim with Balanchine’s original and innovative choreography and highly skilled dancers. Widely acknowledged for its enduring contributions to dance, NYCB is committed to promoting creative excellence and nurturing a new generation of dancers and choreographers. The transmission of skill and knowledge from master to apprentice over generations, and the constant pursuit of excellence, are values shared by the New York City Ballet and Vacheron Constantin.

“We are very pleased to support and celebrate the New York City Ballet with this new partnership,” said Hugues de Pins, President of Vacheron Constantin North America. “Vacheron Constantin is a patron of leading ballet institutions around the world and we are delighted to partner with the premier company in the USA.”

“We are immensely grateful to Vacheron Constantin for their generous support of New York City Ballet and our Spring Gala,” said Peter Martins, Ballet Master in Chief of New York City Ballet.  “We are thrilled to have a partner that appreciates the rich history and creative spirit of our Company, and shares our passion for cultivating the next generation of artists.”
