The School of American Ballet, the official academy of New York City Ballet, will present free lecture-demonstrations on three consecutive March weekends in Brooklyn, Harlem and Queens.
The 45-minute, family-friendly presentation entitled The Beauty of Ballet will illustrate how students develop into accomplished classical ballet dancers, alternating examples of advanced classroom training exercises with the performance of excerpts from notable ballets. School of American Ballet faculty member Katrina Killian (a former New York City Ballet soloist) and advanced students from SAB will be featured in the enchanting and informative introduction to the art of classical ballet.
