The Beauty of Ballet

SAB’s FREE Lecture-Demonstration program is open to the public and presented at NYC neighborhood venues for family audiences. This hour-long presentation 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. The program concludes with 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.

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