Welcome To Our 29th Season!

2020-08-26T21:03:54-04:00

Dear SBS Dancers and Families, I am beyond grateful to announce Scarsdale Ballet Studio’s 29th Season! Thank you for being patient while we were anxiously waiting to be sure that our re-opening could proceed as planned under the current NYS Guidelines. We are thrilled to say we can now offer our dancers the safest possible in-studio instruction and/or synchronous virtual classes. As a former ballerina, flexibility, strength, and “thinking on my feet” were some skills I learned that have stood me in good stead.

2020-05-21T12:19:01-04:00

Diamonds Memories I hope everyone at SBS will take advantage of the rare opportunity to watch the Balanchine/Tchailkovsky/Karinska masterpiece Diamonds, performed by the New York City Ballet, and available for streaming on the NYCB website from now until May 22nd at 8 pm.

I saw it for the first time as a child in  Chicago in 1968, with the original lead cast, Suzanne Farrell and Jacques d’Amboise. Of the three ballets that make up Jewels, Balanchine’s ground-breaking, evening-length plotless ballet, Diamonds was my [...]

Mother’s Day

2020-05-10T21:25:20-04:00

Happy Mother’s Day! Today, I’d like to send all of you “Ballet Moms” out there my utmost good will and support. Throughout recent history and in stories and cinema, mothers of ballet dancers have attained legendary status, and have sometimes gotten a bad rap. While most of this is myth, I can tell you that during my 28 years at Scarsdale Ballet Studio, I have met well over a thousand moms and helped many of them navigate the occasionally bewildering world of their child’s dance education. Several of these women have become my life-long friends. As I reflect on this, I [...]
