In collaboration with the School of American Ballet “The Beauty of Ballet”

Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 2pm. At Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College’s 2012-2013 season continues with The Beauty of Ballet, a free lecture demonstration presented by the School of American Ballet, on Sunday, March 17 at 2pm. This event is free and no tickets will be distributed.

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, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake will be performed to live music. The Beauty of Ballet is recommended for ages 4 through adult.
