“As an alumna of SAB's children's division and summer program, my fondest childhood memories were from my years as a student at SAB and dancing in children's roles with New York City Ballet. My experiences at SAB have deeply shaped the person I am today. It was due to my parents' support and sacrifice that I was able to commute into the city several times a week from New Jersey to attend classes and perform. I now support the School to allow aspiring young dancers the same opportunity I was given.”
