BEHIND THE SCENES AT SAB
A Look Back at SAB’s 2021 New York Junior Session
What happens when 120 dancers between the ages of 10 and 12 descend on our studios at Lincoln Center for a week of ballet classes, seminars, workshops and fun? We call it our New York Junior Session and this year was especially memorable.
Spring Showcase and Workshop Benefit
After nearly a year of remote learning, we closed out the Winter Term with our advanced students performing select Balanchine and Robbins variations in two rather exciting venues – Lincoln Center’s outdoor Damrosch Park and on stage at the David H. Koch Theater for a presentation on film.
