Cuteness Overload: Scenes From SPAC’s Children’s Workshops With the New York City Ballet

For the first time in its history, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) hosted a children’s workshop with the New York City Ballet (NYCB) on its main stage on July 13, the day after load-in. Cuteness abounded, as the dance company’s Mimi Staker led a “master class” at 3pm, designed for children ages 4–8 and featuring choreography from Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. (All involved got complimentary fairy wings.)

A second class, designed for children 9–12, took place at 4:30pm, featured some students who were cast in 2020’s Swan Lake but didn’t get a chance to perform onstage at SPAC, due to last season’s cancellation.

Once again, Saratoga Living sent senior photographer Francesco D’Amico to capture the afternoon’s events.
