Guests, including fashion designer Christian Siriano and model Veronica Webb, were treated to salsa, tango, hip hop, and other dance routines, all performed by ABT Company members. And if dancing didn't hit the spot, guests sampled creative treats paired with wines from some of NYC's hottest chefs and top wineries.
