Workshop Performances

SAB’s annual Workshop Performances are a public demonstration of the continuing tradition of excellence fostered at the School. Dozens of advanced students and a selection of Children’s Division students participate each year in the School’s Workshop, which culminates in three spring performances at Lincoln Center’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater with costumes, lights, and live orchestra.

The ballets presented include standards from the Balanchine repertory, Bournonville excerpts, Jerome Robbins’ ballets, other classical masterworks. In recent years, the Workshop program has featured more contemporary ballets by Justin Peck and William Forsythe. The School also commissions new choreography made especially on SAB students.

Several notable alumni made their pre-professional debut at SAB’s Workshop Performances including Wendy Whalen, Maria Kowroski, Robert Fairchild, Tiler Peck and SAB’s own artistic director Jonathan Stafford. We invite you to join us for the annual spring performances and be introduced to the talented dancers of the future.
