I'm having trouble getting on the ticket swap page. I'm trying to get tickets for the Gaillard performance either show (both sold out). If any one can help-it would be appreciated. Thank you.

She has a younger brother👦 whom she is close to and she considers her mother👩 her best friend. She loves fashion👒, photography📷, to play paddle tennis🎾, and is a very talented painter🎨. She has played the piano🎹 for four years, but stopped due to her busy schedule. She's been dancing💃 for years and is hoping to try out to be an American cheerleader📣while she is here on exchange! Naya-14🇩🇰 She was born in Denmark but now lives in Spain 🇪🇸. She switches her time between countries as her Mom👩 is from Denmark and her Dad👨 is from Spain. She is the oldest of three (two sisters), and has a passion for dancing💃. She has even traveled🧳 with her ballet partners to London and Scotland. In her dance academy, she was chosen to play the main character Belle👸 at the final dance exhibition of Beauty and the Beast. She is not afraid to be on the scene, but likes her work to be perfect or at least good, and she likes to have things under control. She has won Math awards 🏆and plays the piano 🎹.

Blanca-15 🇪🇸 Blanca is a very sociable person and she loves dancing💃 She practices both ballet and contemporary dance👯‍♀️ and she has been studying cello for three years. Blanca says,” The dance for me is so important because I feel free. I feel that I can express my feelings with my body. I can also make a story with pirouettes, different jumps and steps.” She is also a passionate reader. She belongs to the parish 👏youth group and she has collaborated in volunteer activities. She also belongs to a scout group that meets on Saturday afternoons and participates in different camps⛺️ and nature excursions🚣‍♀️🌿🐇. She believes her faith✝️and her extracurricular activities with her youth group have been a gift🎁 to her and made her the generous, empathetic and hardworking girl that she is.

DCC HEALTH & SAFETY// Dancing takes super-human strength and grace, and the addition of iWave air purification systems in our studios allows our dancers to perform their best in class, safely! Installed in all four of our HVACs, iWave has been tested and proven to reduce and inactivate 99.4% of airborne and surface Covid-19, among many other viruses, bacteria, mold, and allergens. 

This investment is one of many health & safety measures we've put in place since returning to in-studio classes this May to help protect our dancers, faculty and community! We have a handful of spaces available in our Fall Semester in-studio and virtual classes, so visit our website to register today! (Link in bio)

SUMMER MEMORIES // Check out this incredible inside look at @sab_nyc's first ever virtual Summer Choreography Workshop featuring DCC Pre-Professional student, Elizabeth Burnett (@elizabethcburnett)! Elizabeth attended The School of American Ballet's Summer Intensive this year and had the amazing opportunity to work with @nycballet Principal Dancer & Choreographer @laurenlovette on a new work that she created completely virually for Advanced students! See their original post for the full IGTV video, and stay tuned for part 2!

Reposted from @sab_nyc A highlight for advanced students in SAB's Summer Course is the Summer Choreography Workshop and this year's choreographers, SAB alumni and New York City Ballet dancers Lauren Lovette and Preston Chamblee, took on the unique challenge of choreographing on our students entirely over Zoom.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In this part 1 of 3, go behind the scenes with Lauren, Preston, and a handful of students to see inside rehearsals and discover how they approached this unusual virtual choreographic process.
