Dancers and the people who support them held a celebration at the Upper East Side home of Susan Gutfreund on Friday night.

The event was for the Youth American Grand Prix, which helps young dancers around the world realize their potential. Before the party, guests enjoyed a performance of “Jewels” at Lincoln Center, where the Paris Opera Ballet, New York City Ballet and Bolshoi Ballet each performed one act.
