2019-2020 Season

Winter Concert: Peter and the Wolf - January 11

Our winter concert will be a presentation of the beloved folk tale "Peter and the Wolf," set to the unforgettable score by Sergei Prokofiev, with new choreography by Naomi Hanvey. Auditions are September 21!

The winter concert will also feature some short works of choreography developed by students of our Modern Improvisation program under the guidance of Phaedra Jarrett. You won't want to miss seeing these talented young choreographers' work!

Summer Concert: Mermaid

Our summer concert will feature Phaedra Jarrett's "Mermaid," a fun twist on Hans Christian Andersen's famous fairy tale set in the 1980s. This contemporary ballet explores the themes of isolation, prejudice, identity, and acceptance. As always, SYB will perform in tandem with the Academy of Dance in the Summer Concert.


SYB has produced a number of contemporary ballets, including:

- Sleeping Rosa

- A Midsummer Night's Dream

- The Dancing Princesses

- Mermaid

- Cindy Rella

- Alice in Wondrousland
