children’s ballet series
Created to introduce even the youngest viewer to the art form of dance. The Series consists of hour-long, narrated performances adapted specifically for children. Past performances of the series have included, Toy Shop, Peter and the Wolf, Ugly Duckling, Carnival of Animals, The Fairy Doll, and 9/11 “An American Moment”.
These hour-long presentations bring dance to the young viewer’s level through an intimate atmosphere:
- Children are able to view a shortened version of a ballet production of which narration is provided to help the young audience understand the story and to keep their interest at its peak.
- At the end of each show, children have the unique opportunities to meet characters, touch the costumes, and interact with the show’s performers.
