In 1964, Alexandra Danilova, George Balanchine’s former classmate at the Imperial Ballet and a leading ballerina of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo joined SAB’s faculty. In 1965, Madame Danilova established SAB’s annual year-end Workshop Performances, giving the School’s advanced students an opportunity to participate in professionally staged, publicly performed productions of classic ballet works. Since its inception, the Workshop Performances have seen hundreds of SAB’s advanced students make their public debut as they prepare to leave SAB and go on to dance on the world’s top stages. The New York Times coined Workshop a “spot-them-before-they-are-stars showcase”. Scores of notable SAB alumni have performed at Workshop, including Merrill Ashley, Peter Boal, Maria Kowroski, Lourdes Lopez, Sara Mearns, Benjamin Millepied, Ethan Stiefel, and Wendy Whelan.

The 2014 Workshop Performances program will include Balanchine’s Serenade (staged by Suki Schorer); and excerpts from Coppélia (staged by Dena Abergel, Yvonne Borree, Kaitlyn Gilliland, Arch Higgins, Katrina Killian, Lisa de Ribere, Jock Soto and Sheryl Ware), Swan Lake (staged by Darci Kistler) and Western Symphony (staged by Susan Pilarre). Additional performances of the evening’s program will take place at Lincoln Center’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater on Saturday, May 31 at 2pm and 8pm.

Tickets for the 2014 Workshop Performances may be purchased online at http://www.sab.org/workshop. Ticket prices are $50 for May 31 (2pm and 8pm). Tickets for the June 3 benefit performance and dinner dance are available at $100 (performance only), $300, $1,000, $1,500 and $2,500 and may be purchased at https://net.sab.org/workshopbenefit. The Peter Jay Sharp Theater is located at 155 W. 65th Street (between Amsterdam and Broadway).

ABOUT SCHOOL OF AMERICAN BALLET
The School of American Ballet, the official training academy of the New York City Ballet, was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein as the first and most essential step in their quest to create an American classical ballet company.

SAB, located at New York City’s Lincoln Center, is the premier ballet academy in the United States, training more students who go on to become professional dancers than any other school. SAB's former students fill the ranks of the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies.
