Suzanne Farrell Workshop for Young Dancers

Florida State University’s School of Dance and Friends of Dance will once again host the Suzanne Farrell Workshop for Young Dancers on February 3rd and 4th, 2018. The workshop is geared towards intermediate and advanced students ages 10-18, and will provide the student a once in a life time opportunity to take a master class from world-renowned ballerina Suzanne Farrell.

All classes will be held in Montgomery Hall on the FSU campus.

Dancers need to have a liability and photo release form signed by their parents or guardians on or before registration. Those who do not have a form on file will not be allowed to participate. We cannot accommodate dancers who only want one day.

Suzanne Farrell gained international fame as George Balanchine’s most celebrated muse. Since retiring from the stage Ms. Farrell has directed her own acclaimed company, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, in conjunction with the Kennedy Center; has acted as a repetiteur for the George Balanchine Trust, and has been on the faculty of the FSU School of Dance. The national dance community is fortunate that Ms. Farrell continues to share her talent and artistry each year with the young dancers from across the nation.
