The Beauty of Ballet

SAB’s FREE community performances are to the public and presented at NYC neighborhood venues for family audiences. This hour-long demonstration is led by SAB faculty member Katrina Killian and features advanced SAB students. Guests are offered a sneak-peek inside SAB’s classroom to witness how students train to become professional dancers. Audience members will have the opportunity to try a few steps right from their seats before seeing excerpts from famous ballets including The NutcrackerSwan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty – performed by our students in costume to live music. Recommended for young children and families, The Beauty of Ballet is a wonderful introduction to the art of ballet. Read more about this program from the perspective of an SAB student performer.

SAB will present The Beauty of Ballet in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx this March. FREE admission to all locations. Seating is first-come, first-served. See dates and locations below.
