VISITING SCHOOLS AROUND UTAH JAN. 9 – 20
SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Ballet West for Children will be presenting to schools in several cities in northern and central Utah from Jan. 9 – 20. Note: these are private performances for students only; however, media is invited to cover the event.
The Ballet West for Children program is designed to introduce students and faculty to the art of ballet and is presented by Ballet West II. The small touring group travels throughout the state and performs free of charge to students and faculty at each Utah public elementary school every five to six years. This rotation allows all elementary school children in Utah to experience at least one Ballet West presentation during his or her grade school years.
“We particularly enjoy bringing our programs to schools outside of the Wasatch front,” said Ballet West Director of Education & Community Outreach Peter Christie. “It’s important to present our artform in their schools firsthand so they can experience live performance in their own backyard.”
In 1963 Ballet West began education programs for students and teachers of all ages. Each year, Ballet West Educational and Outreach programs serve more than 20 districts, 320 schools, and 100,000 students throughout the state. In addition, Ballet West serves numerous home schools and special needs groups.
Ballet West Educational and Outreach programs are supported by generous contributions from public minded corporations, individuals, foundations, government agencies, and by a broad base of community support.
