The past few weeks we have been creating and setting pieces for our 2022-23 Season . What an amazing and inspiring program of Classical solos, Contemporary solos and Ensemble pieces we have!
( and looking forward to a few more solos and Ensemble being created this summer)

But perhaps the most significant is the COMMUNITY.. the collaboration of our dancers, our teachers, our choreographers, our Alumni , our former students ( original cast of some pieces) are the true INSPIRATION and what this art form is about!

Thank you Ms. Skye ⭐️,
Annabelle Adams ⭐️ ❤️
Charlotte Zatterstrom❤️ and
Isabelle Evangelista ⭐️💗 for setting and coaching the Classical pieces.

I wish to take a moment and thank our dancers, our teachers, our families and SBC Community for such a fabulous year!

The BEAUTY onstage..
The JOY shared in the work process
The PASSION in the studio and onstage for this beautiful art form.

From our fabulous Nutcracker in November … the best one ever , clean beautiful dancing updated costumes and the LARGEST audience attendance ever!

Our intimate In Studio December Gala performances were boxes of jewels for our guests.

Our successful YAGP , YAGP Finals and Etoile Competitions in which each dancer represented SBC’s heart and soul.

To our amazing May Celebration of Classics Performance , filled with spectacular dancing by all!

Our fabulous photo shoots with Jeri Tidwell Dance Photography and Jan Hanus. Thank you to our other photographers Gerard Rugel, James Black, Eric Gunn, Eric Wolf and Quang Phan for capturing the magic and beauty.

We end the 2021-22 school year, but already creating more experiences with YAGP pieces, Summer Intensive and the start of another exciting school year.

We have more exciting programs and performances planned for next year.

We intentionally are not a stylized school in training but rather focus on what each specific dancer and family needs and wants… making it magical for us all! The training , the love I received from each of my own teachers and directors is what I pass on to my students and team of teachers.

Additionally, each of our teachers bring their knowledge , experience and desire to bring the best in each dancer. A truly exciting team!

Thank you ! ❤️
We can’t wait to see what our TENTH YEAR 2022-23 brings!

❤️ Ms. Skye

Beauty Joy and Passion
The essence of SBC..

“Recently I joined in the celebration of 50 years of teaching of the amazing Suki Schorer. Seeing her as well as some of my other teachers Kay Mazzo, Susie Pilarre and Vicky Simon … along with the amazing and continuous support of my teachers at PNB including Victoria Pulkkinen , Lisa Peterson ( there are other teachers I also value) and the wonderful inspiring directors I worked with Suzanne Farrell, Paul Mejia, Dan Duell…

How incredibly fortunate am I to be guided and surrounded by these greats who passionate , successful and beautiful masters of the ballet world.

I remember the sparkle and PASSION in my teachers eyes..

I remember the sparkle and the JOY of dancing onstage during my career.

The BEAUTY of the sparkle I see in my students , my alumni , my teachers in the studio, onstage and in life..

There are so many who are apart of this amazing community SKYE BALLET CENTER.. forever amazed and full of gratitude. The path we have , the new experiences and opportunities we take on inspires us all to take in the BEAUTY JOY and PASSION of life.

Thank you to my teachers for believing in me so that I can continue the love of this art you taught me so well.”

When you receive amazing messages from your teacher at Pacific Northwest Ballet … ❤️
Passing on the beauty and care expressed by our teachers to the next generation…

“Jody they are so beautiful! What an incredible job you have done! You & Allen have done such amazing things! A ballet school from scratch… PLEASE tell your dancers how wonderful it made me feel to watch them dance so beautifully & with such artistry showing their love of dance…. We need these young artists in all of our lives right now. I took about a half an hour this morning & watched the videos once more… now I am in a much calmer mood & can face the day with a bit more strength because of you all. Thank you . KEEP up the good work dancers !

Athletes / Dancers are given a taste of the forbinned fruit (praise, admiration, fame, success, adrenaline rush, centered attention, ect...) and then it's over, there is no looming prize ahead. Often they will feel an after performance let down. This past weekend our dancers stood in front of nearly 500 people and recieved an unparelleled amount of praise. A praise we cannot compete with, however for the good of the children, parents we should try... It's not the dance that defines them as unique and special. Dance is the expression of these truly exceptional human beings!!! Love and light, Mr. Schissler
