THE JENNIFER ALEXANDER MEMORIAL FUND
Marian Butler Named First Annual Jennifer Alexander Dancer
American Ballet Theatre has announced the formation of The Jennifer Alexander Memorial Fund, to honor the late Jennifer Alexander, a beloved member of ABT’s corps de ballet. Gifts to the Fund will be used to support the newly established Jennifer Alexander Dancer, recognizing a senior female dancer in the corps de ballet.
“In honor of our dear friend and colleague, the title of Jennifer Alexander Dancer will be bestowed annually upon one member of the corps de ballet who best represents the professionalism, perseverance and generosity that Jennifer herself embodied,” said Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie. “We are proud to recognize Marian Butler as the inaugural recipient.”
