Workshop Performance Benefit

Every year, the School's advanced students participate in an intensive workshop process that culminates in three extraordinary public performances in the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Juilliard. The final performance is a special benefit for the School. Patrons attend the performance and then join SAB faculty and friends for dinner and dancing. The energy and joy from the students' performance follows guests into dinner and makes the evening a highlight of every ballet lover's calendar.

Funds raised through the Workshop Performance Benefit help the School in a variety of ways: scholarships for students, salaries for faculty members, studio and residence upkeep, academic education, special student programs and pointe shoe purchases.

The Workshop Performance Benefit will be held on Monday, June 5, 2017.
