Saint Augustine Ballet (SAB) is a 501(C)3 non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing dance instruction and creating opportunities for students of dance and giving the community quality ballet performances. Our dancers gain valuable insights into the world of classical ballet by having the unique opportunity to perform side by side with professional guest artists. Saint Augustine Ballet invites all dancers from throughout Northeast Florida to audition for our shows regardless of their dance studio affiliation.
Each year we put on four events which include two full-length ballets, a dance festival, and a student gala performance. Fall is our International Dance Festival and in December we present our signature production and a holiday favorite The Nutcracker. Our Spring production varies each year. In the past, we have done Alice in Wonderland, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Wizard of Oz, and more. Our student gala performance is also in the spring and this event is to showcase all that SAB’s full-time students have learned throughout the year.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from all ticket sales, dance fees, and sponsorships go towards Saint Augustine Ballet’s operating expenses. This includes costumes, set designs, theater rental, advertising and promotion, talent fees, production fees, and liability insurance.
