Ballet Connoisseurship

SAB’s Ballet Connoisseurship is an educational offering for adults providing seasoned ballet goers, patrons, students, scholars, and newcomers alike with knowledge and perspectives that will enhance their appreciation of ballet. Ballet Connoisseurship was launched in January 2019 as part of the “SAB Open” division and features seminars exploring ballet history, technique, and choreographic masters.

Throughout Covid, Ballet Connoisseurship sessions were held virtually via Zoom and recorded live. We returned to in-person sessions this past spring, which were streamed live and recorded. We are pleased to offer access to our library of 26 previously-recorded Ballet Connoisseurship sessions through Vimeo On Demand. This collection includes sessions from units exploring George Balanchine’s black and white ballets, Jerome Robbins’ unique choreography style, comedy in ballet, contemporary choreographers, and more. Sessions are available to rent for $20 each.  Or you can buy all 20 for just $125.

Ballet Connoisseurship is made possible in part by a grant from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation.
