An alumnus of SAB and former NYCB principal dancer, Jonathan Stafford has been an important figure in the life of the School for over a decade, serving on SAB's faculty and creating the role of Professional Placement Manager. He has shown a sincere dedication to the success, growth and well-being of the School's students.
