When imagination, inspiration and expression meet talent, training and technique, a Sawnee Ballet Theatre show is in the making.
SBT's fall showcase, Entrelacé, presents eclectic repertory and original works that highlight classical and contemporary dance technique including classical ballet, contemporary ballet, modern, and jazz. The intimate setting of the blackbox theater at Forsyth Academy of Performing Arts allows audiences to immerse themselves in the music and movement. This performance appeals to audiences of all ages and pleases lovers of multiple genres of dance.
Each spring, Sawnee Ballet Theatre presents a professionally staged production with full costumes and lighting. In providing excellence in arts education, SBT seeks to educate not only the dancers participating in the productions, but the audience as well with traditional ballets such as Les Sylphides, La Bayadere, and Swan Lake. SBT is also known for its contemporary interpretations of childhood classics such as Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and The Swan Princess. In our 26th season, SBT is excited to debut Peter and the Wolf in addition to expanding their repertory with concert-length works in contemporary ballet, modern, jazz, musical theatre, and tap.
