As a parent, you are already making a crucial impact on the future of classical dance by providing your child with the opportunity to attend a world-class ballet academy.
The School of American Ballet is honored to welcome the more than 1,000 families each year who make up our passionate and diverse community through our Winter Term, Summer Course, New York Junior Session, and California Workshop.
You may not know that annual tuition covers just 1/3 of the true cost of SAB’s training. As a not-for-profit institution, the School relies on generous individuals – including dedicated parents who understand the true value of dance education – to raise funds for scholarships, the outstanding training our world-class faculty provides, and the essential student life support our students need to thrive inside and outside the studio.
Join fellow parents and grandparents alike by becoming a Member today. Even a modest contribution makes a big difference; gifts of every size add up to make a significant impact! Learn more about the range of Membership levels and begin enjoying benefits like invitations to exclusive Open Houses and private rehearsals for even more opportunities to watch our Advanced Students in action.
Your tax-deductible donation will have a direct impact on SAB’s ability to offer the finest ballet training possible to aspiring dancers. Please be assured, SAB is committed to providing equal opportunity for its students. Gifts to the School have absolutely no bearing on future acceptance to, or advancement in, our audition-based training program, but rather ensure the exceptional quality of training you have witnessed firsthand.

"SAB is not only a world class institution but also a local New York City treasure. Our daughter is in her 4th year at SAB and she started as a beginner in the Prep Division. In a short time, SAB has taught her the importance of music appreciation, a proper dance foundation, tradition and community. Balanchine and his techniques will live with her forever. Our respect for this organization grows each year as we see firsthand the commitment of the faculty and administration - they are professionals in every way. Everyone in the SAB community has a deep sense of purpose and in turn, this commitment has brought forth such joy in our daughter and our entire family."
Ian and Jennifer Deason, SAB parents
