One of the most visually compelling moments in George Balanchine’s SERENADE is when the Waltz Girl falls dramatically to the floor and her hair comes undone. Before our students take the stage to dance this iconic ballet at our Workshop Benefit tonight, watch as students Maya and Ariel explain how they achieve this bit of stage magic and how it feels to be a part of this historic ballet on SAB’s 90th anniversary year.
