Noche de Pasión: A Salute to Ballet

Ballet Dancer Wearing Tahitian Pearl Necklace

The collaboration between Spey and the arts in DC continues with a special participation in Noche de Pasión: The Tango Soirée, presented by The Washington Ballet Women’s Committee, Jeté Society, and Latino Dance Fund Host Committee.

Noche de Pasión brings together a dynamic group of hundreds of leaders across business, arts, politics, community, and culture for one common cause: to support artistic initiatives in the District. Spey challenged other patrons of the arts with a gift to the evening’s auction: a Spey princess-length Tahitian necklace of pearls deep in peacock and aubergine color.

This inaugural event benefits the Ballet’s scholarship programs and Latino Dance Fund, while showcasing five Hans van Manen tangos and other works from the autumn repertory program “Masterworks.” Spey joins Artistic Director Septime Webre and members of the diplomatic community at the Organization of American States, transformed for the night into a sultry Buenos Aires tango club.

The unique personality of Spey jewels is born of the interplay between tension and movement, an act analogous to the artistry of ballet. Spey is proud to share this common vision of creative impulse, and to work toward betterment and beauty in the nation’s capital.
