ACT I

Swan Lake by American Ballet Theatre

After spending seven months apart due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the young dancers of ABT Studio Company gathered in fall 2020 for a “ballet bubble” with stringent Covid-19 safety protocols in place. Following fourteen days of quarantine, the dancers, staff, and choreographers spent five weeks rehearsing nine ballets at Goodspeed Musicals in East Haddam, CT and Kaatsbaan Cultural Park in Tivoli, NY. Filmed at Kaatsbaan, the ABT Studio Company Winter Festival celebrates ABT Studio Company’s commitment to cultivating both innovative new choreography and a promising new generation of dancers.
