SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga City Ballet (SCB) has provided education in the art of dance for young children through adults in Saratoga Springs for many years. With the closures due to COVID, Saratoga City Ballet seamlessly provided opportunities for their students to continue to train and connect with their peers and teachers with live classes online. In order to provide opportunities to learn and prepare pieces for performance, artistic director Beth Fecteau choreographed variations from her full-length ballet Sleepless Beauty. Students will perform these variations which will be shared with families and friends via video. 

Saratoga City Ballet is now offering summer programming for dancers ages 3 to 18, including beginner and advanced classes in Broadway Jazz, Ballet, Storybook “Swan Lake,” and Master Classes with Professional NYCB dances in conjunction with Ballet in the City. Refer to www.saratogacityballet.com for program details and registration.

In addition, with theaters opening this year, Saratoga City Ballet and Nacre have announced they will hold auditions for ages 5-adult in September 2021 for the annual full-length Nutcracker to be held at the Egg Theater in Albany. Refer to www.saratogacityballet.com for information later this summer.
