Columbia City Ballet is doing Beauty and the Beast Ballet for their educational outreach performance. See details on the side under special events or go here for more details.
I am going to take my kids to the Thursday11:15 performance and I'd love for you to join me. I have been to several of these educational outreach performances and they are great for little ones. The performance is only an hour long and the seats are only $5. This is a real ballet with professional dancers but they shorten it to accommodate schools. Since you are homeschooling if you have preschool children at home then you can register early and get a free educational packet.
From their website:
At only $5 per seat, this can't-miss opportunity to learn about various dance forms, history and stagecraft is not only a wonderful learning experience but also a superb value. Students and adults of all ages are invited to attend these special Koger Center performances for the same low price.
Two weeks prior to every performance, Columbia City Ballet will send an educational packet to every registered teacher who has paid in full. Materials may include the history of ballet, informative games, ballet terms and information on proper ballet etiquette.
Most performances last from 45 minutes to an hour, including a Q&A and demonstration session.
Leave a comment if you want to come. Also let me know if you like the idea but just can't make it to this event. I hope you'll join us!
