Pittsfield: Albany Berkshire Ballet unveiling award at gala


A new award established to recognize "outstanding achievements and contributions to the art of dance" will be unveiled at Albany Berkshire Ballet's 50th Anniversary gala celebration, "The Golden Age of Dance," being held from 5:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Holiday Inn, 1 West St.

The award, to be presented annually, will bear the name of Madeline Cantarella Culpo, a champion of dance performance and education in the Northeast for more than 65 years. Sculptor Andrew DeVries has created an original work of art that will serve to launch the award.

The gala features a silent auction reception, banquet dinner, performance excerpt from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," and after-party with DJ BFG.
