California Workshop

Please note, this program is not being held in 2021.
As an alternative, we are offering a Young Dancer Virtual Workshop.
Auditions are currently closed.

SAB’s annual, two-week intensive in Southern California is focused on strengthening technique and introducing the Balanchine aesthetic to serious young ballet students between the ages of 10 and 12.  Students take two daily technique, pointe or variations classes with members of SAB’s permanent faculty, Monday through Friday, and weekly Pilates mat classes with a certified instructor. SAB considers the CA Workshop to be an important starting point for cultivating young students with the potential to transition into the School’s New York programs. Over the nine years since SAB established the CA Workshop, scores of students who first enrolled in SAB’s California program have gone on to be accepted into SAB’s Summer Course, some have enrolled in our Winter Term, and two are now dancing with New York City Ballet.
