Innovation, the focus of this convening, is a more relevant topic than ever. Our ability to work together creatively and dynamically across sectors is what will ultimately slow and halt the current global health crisis. For our part, we are viewing the coming months as a time of research and development that will ultimately add value to Turning Pointe and future conversations amongst the business, health, and technology communities. 
We continue to deeply appreciate your support and sponsorship of this event. And we look forward to keeping you apprised of updates as they become available.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly at mtierney@bostonballet.org.

Tuesday, Sep 22 from 6-9 pm at the Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts.

In the meantime, we warmly invite you to take a moment and enjoy a look back at Boston Ballet's virtual Turning Pointe conversation from April 28, 2020.
