Manhattan Youth Ballet and Manhattan Movement & Arts Center present Annual Spring Workshop Performances on Friday, March 7 at 7pm; Saturday, March 8 at 3pm & 7pm; and Sunday, March 9 at 3pm, at the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, 248 West 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) in the Lincoln Center area. Advance tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at www.manhattanyouthballet.org. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students at the door.

The Annual Spring Workshop Performances are the culmination of a rehearsal process that begins with the Winter Workshop Intensive in January each year. Students will perform selections from classical masterpieces as well as new works specifically choreographed for Manhattan Youth Ballet.

The evening includes excerpts from George Balanchine's Harlequinade; a World Premiere by Choreographer-in-Residence Brian Reeder; excerpts from Raymonda, staged by Marina Stavitskaya; a World Premiere choreographed by Attila Joey Csiki; and Carnival of the Animals, choreographed by MYB faculty member Karen Lacy.

Modeled with an emphasis on European classical ballet, Manhattan Youth Ballet (MYB) offers world-class training in a nurturing environment focused on discipline, precision and artistry. MYB is the culmination of Ms. Rose Caiola's effort for the past seventeen years to create a viable, curriculum-based ballet academy in Manhattan in order to serve the needs of the multifaceted community. Principal members of the faculty have received their training in schools such as the The Kirov Ballet, School of American Ballet, and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. The faculty strives to bring out the individual potential of each student with an emphasis on artistry as well as technique to create truly versatile dancers for the current dance world. Manhattan Youth Ballet has acquired a reputation for excellent teaching in an intimate and individually supportive environment. The school's graduates have danced professionally with American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, Ballet de España, San Francisco Ballet and Complexions.
