It was a packed house at the Abrons Arts Center on Sunday for an impressive benefit performance, An Afternoon to Celebrate Amar Ramasar and Friends, held in honor of Abrons alumnus and New York City Ballet principal dancer Amar Ramasar and the talented students at Abrons. We knew it was a rare treat to see Mr. Ramasar, live and up close, but we had no idea we’d get to see such fantastic talent from the students at Abrons.  (More gorgeous photos after the jump.)Read more about the event on Henry Street’s website here.
