The John Butler Foundation was founded in 1997 by Melvin Dwork. It is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the choreographic works of John Butler and to the continuation of his spirit of creativity. The Foundation plays a curatorial role in assuring that meaningful Butler ballets are kept alive while endeavoring to support the work of promising future talent.

 

 

 

"Having courage to take the risk: that's what an artist is all about."
