A trip down Memory Lane via our Instagram Feed
Since the Workshop Performances are a huge part of the last three months of the usual SAB Winter Term, it should come as no surprise that we’ve documented quite a bit of the process and unforgettable moments on our Instagram feed. A quick scroll back through the years reveals so many delightful memories on stage and in the studio! One, in particular, was a bit of rehearsal for Balanchine’s Scotch Symphony captured through The New York Times weekly #SpeakingInDance Instagram series. Relive this beautiful moment in preparation for seeing the final performance in tomorrow’s Virtual Celebration.
