The School of American Ballet (SAB) is the official school of the New York City Ballet Company. It was created in 1933 by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein. It immediately became known for its style, called the "Balanchine Method," which combines classical and modern dance. The school also adheres to this method when it has to welcome new dancers, who must therefore meet particular technical and stylistic requirements, including musicality and the ability to combine classical and modern.
