School of American Ballet

The Next Movement Starts With You.

SAB produces more professional dancers than any other American school. SAB In Motion, our new capital campaign, will ensure that we can continue shaping the world's finest dancers. Our goal is to raise $20 million by August 31, 2017.

Help our students along their journeys.

The SAB journey begins the day our students walk into their first audition. And it continues well into their careers.

Recruit

We seek the best talents worldwide regardless of their means and strive to recruit students who reflect the diverse society in which we live.

“I want to be in a professional dance company someday. It's because of my scholarship that I'm able to attend SAB, refine my dancing and do what I love.”

“The teachers are amazing. They are able to convey these concepts of dance in a way that makes you just want to be there for it.”

Train

Our students are taught the Balanchine aesthetic, using highly accomplished teachers and staff in state-of-the-art facilities.

Nurture

We provide our students with wellness and developmental resources so they succeed both in a ballet studio and beyond.

“My first year, I got to perform with New York City Ballet. I was so nervous […] but when I went out there, I just felt comfortable and had so much fun.”

“I definitely want to become a professional dancer and continue in the Balanchine aesthetic […] I'm excited to finally step out on stage and pour my heart out in dance.”
