Winter 2018 in New York City Ballet Posted March 8, 2018 22 hours ago, abatt said: I don't think NYCB has a diversity of dancing styles. That's why they hire almost all of the main company from SAB, where all the students have learned Balanchine technique. Disagree. There is a huge diversity within the style as well. Why isn't Sara Mearns the same as Ashley Bouder the same as Megan Fairchild? They all graduated from SAB. It's Because of DIVERSITY!!!!
