Come and enjoy the beauty of ballet as students and faculty from the School of American Ballet perform on March 11 at the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College.

The program illustrates the process by which talented youngsters develop into accomplished classical ballet dancers. Children will watch a “class” in this 45-minute presentation, where training exercises and steps are demonstrated and answer questions such as how do ballerinas dance on their toes, how do dancers spin and turn without getting dizzy, how do male dancers jump so high, and more. Children will also enjoy excerpts from famous ballets, including “Sleeping Beauty,” George Balanchine’s “The Nutcracker,” and “Swan Lake.”

Recommended for ages 4 and up.

“The Beauty of Ballet,” March 11, at 2 pm. Free, no reservations required.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College [2900 Campus Rd. between Hillel Place and Avenue H in Midwood, (718) 951–4500; www.brooklyncenter.org].
