Mae L. Wien

Mae L. Wien Awards

The Mae L. Wien Awards were established at the School of American Ballet by Lawrence A. Wien with his daughters and their families to honor Mrs. Wien, a great devotee of ballet who was also deeply interested in young people. Each year a handful of students are chosen to receive awards for their outstanding promise and a faculty member is honored for his or her distinguished service.
