Four of our SBI performing artists were offered scholarships to take part in the Steps Summer Intensive at Steps on Broadway.The Students trained rigorously in Ballet, Modern, Horton, Jazz, Hip-Hop and Composition for 3- weeks in August. Their performance in the program was so well received by the faculty that some were invited to attend the program again in the fall.
SBI alumni choreographer Alrick Thomas teamed up with board member Maija Garcia to choreograph and present a tribute to Michael Jackson at Spike Lee's Brooklyn Loves MJ event on August 26th. Two SBI alumni performed along with young professionals from our downtown program partner, The Door. The event was a wild success with over 1,000 people in attendance
