SOME BACKGROUND

The Blankenship Ballet Company is continuing its goal of revitalizing eclectic and historic buildings by transforming them into glorious arts venues in which "world class" performing artists amplify the exhibition of the arts by seeking to eliminate what the late Richard Wagner, composer of Die Walkure, labeled the "Mystic Gulf" between the audience and the dancers.

Such an artistic goal has been accomplished to the delight of thousands of spectators who have been inspired by Blankenship Ballet's presentation of World Class Dancers performing Classical Ballet and Cuban Ballet and other forms of dance in eclectic intimate venues that enable the audience to connect and feel the powerful evocative energy of the live performing arts.

ABOUT THE VENUE:  THE ALEXANDRIA HOTEL

The Alexandria Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, California, which in its heyday from 1911 to 1922, was the scene of speeches by U.S. Presidents William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson and Gen. John J. Pershing.  Alexandria was the place where Paul Whiteman, later known as the "Jazz King," got his start as a bandleader in 1919, where Rudolph Valentino danced with movie starlets and where Hollywood held its most significant balls during the early days of the motion picture business.

In 2005, the Los Angeles Times described the Alexandria:  

"It was the film industry's first home in the early 1900s, a place where dozens of studios maintained offices, where Charlie Chaplin and friends formed United Artists, where the lobby bustled with so many deal makers that a Persian rug there was deemed the 'million-dollar carpet.'"

SPECIAL THANKS

The Blankenship Ballet Company and Blankenship Cabaret Theatre wish to provide special thanks and gratitude to the Arnold Rubenstein, Paul Buxbaum, Buxbaum Group, Amerland Group, Ruben Islas, Jules Arthur,  Latino Producers Action Network (LPAN), Sandra Islas, VCA Realty and Carlos Vasquez for their vital and passionate philanthropic efforts aimed at amplifying the exhibition of the arts at Alexandria and in the "historic core" of downtown Los Angeles.
