2020 Virtual Workshop Performance Celebration

SAB presented its first-ever Virtual Workshop Performance Celebration premiering July 9, 2020 on sab.org, YouTube, and Facebook.

The School of American Ballet’s annual Workshop Performances have been a celebrated rite of passage for some of the most promising ballet students in the nation for over 55 years and a treasured opportunity for ballet aficionados to spot “the stars of tomorrow.” In the spring of 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of the live Workshop Performances, we were thrilled to present a collection of outstanding performances from recent years. This special streaming event took place in July 2020 and included performances of Scotch Symphony from 2017, Circus Polka and In Creases from 2018, and Agon (pas de deux) from 2019. Our celebration also included commentary and introductions by SAB’s Artistic Director Jonathan Stafford and Chairman of Faculty Kay Mazzo, distinguished alumni Justin Peck and Maria Kowroski, and SAB’s senior faculty member Suki Schorer.

Thank you to all who attended and supported the School through the SAB Response Fund. Our work could not continue without you, our steadfast supporters.
