Celebrating 50 Years of Suki

SAB invites alumni near and far to celebrate Suki Schorer’s 50th Anniversary at SAB! Since joining the permanent faculty in 1972, Suki has touched the lives of countless young dancers, imparting her wisdom and singular understanding of Balanchine’s teaching and aesthetic to generations of students. The School will honor Suki at our 2022 Workshop Performances and we invite alumni to join us in celebrating her this spring.
