Statesboro Youth Ballet
Statesboro Youth Ballet (SYB) offers a structured ballet education to students of all ages. We emphasize the foundation of classical ballet, which includes placement of the arms, legs, head, and back, to properly develop turnout, muscle strength, and flexibility. Artistic Director Jurijs Safonovs received his dance education in Riga, Latvia, and designed SYB's program with the influence of his Russian style (Vaganova) training. The Vaganova method is proven to create harmony of movement and great expressive range in classically trained students. The most acclaimed stars of ballet, including Baryshnikov, Makarova, Godunov and Korsavina, achieved their excellence while training in the Vaganova technique.
Ballet, tap and modern jazz classes for boys and girls, ages 3 through adult are available.
