The Beauty of Ballet
Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 2pm
Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2016-17 season with The Beauty of Ballet, a free lecture demonstration presented by the School of American Ballet (SAB), on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 2pm. This event is recommended for children ages four and up. Admission is free, with no tickets or reservations required.

The 45-minute, family-friendly presentation 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.

How do ballerinas dance on their toes? How do dancers spin and turn without getting dizzy? How do male dancers jump so high? Those questions and more will be answered during the demonstration, and favorite moments from ballets such as The Sleeping Beauty, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker®, and Swan Lake will be performed to live music. The Beauty of Ballet is recommended for ages 4 through adult.

Folktales (2003), choreography by Clive Thompson
