The Beauty of Ballet

The Beauty of Ballet is SAB’s free Lecture-Demonstration program which is open to the public and presented at NYC neighborhood venues for family audiences in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Harlem.  This hour-long presentation is led by SAB faculty member Katrina Killian and features advanced SAB students. Audiences are offered a sneak-peek inside SAB’s classroom to witness how students train to become professional dancers. The program concludes with excerpts from famous ballets including The NutcrackerSwan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty - performed by our students to live music.  Recommended for ages 4 and above, The Beauty of Ballet is a wonderful introduction to the art of ballet.

The 2019 Beauty of Ballet performance schedule is included below.  Check the venue web sites for more information.
