The School of American Ballet

How do ballerinas dance on their toes? How do dancers spin in place without getting dizzy? Those questions and more will be answered when the world-famous School of American Ballet, the official academy of New York City Ballet, comes to Queens Theatre in the Park.
SAB faculty will introduce children to the beauty of ballet, and illustrate how talented students can develop into accomplished classical dancers. Class exercises are shown along with performance excerpts from ballets such as "The Nutcracker" and "The Sleeping Beauty".
The School of American Ballet: The Beauty of Ballet is part of Queens Theatre in the Park’s Kids’ Corner series, sponsored by Queens Center.
