The experience of seeing SAB's Workshop live is like no other. The bubbling energy of young dancers bringing their enthusiasm and passion for dance to the stage is electric and we photographed the rehearsals and performances - from backstage and in the house - to try to capture a bit of that magic. It's hard to believe it's nearly been a month since our students took the stage! Join us as we recount this year's fabulous Workshop Performances through photos on the SAB blog today: #LinkInBio
