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.

In the spring of 2020, we transitioned our Ballet Connoisseurship seminars to a remote format which opened up the program to a whole new group of ballet fans across the country and around the world. As we continue to develop upcoming live sessions, we are delighted to offer a library of previously-recorded sessions through Vimeo On Demand.

Ballet Connoisseurship On Demand

We are pleased to offer access to our library of 20 previously-recorded remote 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 $25 each. And now through the end of the year, we are offering all 20 sessions for only $100!
