Broadway & Ballet

The Broadway and Ballet HERO Awards features 14 spectacular performances by stars from the worlds of Broadway and Ballet

that will perform together.


The event is not just about raising much-needed funds for HERO, it also showcases the amazing talents of the New York City Broadway and dance community. The entire evening's entertainment consists of world premieres of dance pieces set to a wide variety of musical genres. While the artists who perform each year are primarily from the Broadway and ballet worlds, the works they create for the Awards run the gamut of styles from downtown contemporary, to modern, and everything in between.
