Special Engagements

See us perform outside of the big stage! Each year Syracuse City Ballet is able to be a part of many Special Engagement performances outside of our regularly scheduled season. Whether collaborating with local arts organizations, or putting on a show of our own, these performances show the range and diversity of SCB. Join us!
