For fans of ballet, the last seven months have been a long dry spell, but State Street Ballet has good news at last with a pair of programs scheduled to run from Wednesday, October 21, through the evening of Thursday, October 29. At noon on the 21st, a weeklong online auction benefit kicks off, featuring delightful items from ballet-themed art and wine and experiences like a private guitar concert and surf lessons followed by dinner.

When the bidding closes at 11:45 p.m. on October 28, the countdown begins to Art While Apart, an evening of brand-new dance videos that will be streamed on State Street Ballet’s Facebook page and its YouTube channel starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 29. These delightful videos feature choreography by Anna Carnes and Cecily MacDougall, and of course all your favorite SSB dancers. For more information and to browse the auction, visit
