Teachers and students are frequently surprised at how fascinating live ballet performances can be. Through demonstrations, professional dancers share with students the techniques and training behind ballet. We explain the flow and dynamics of choreographic sequences as well as artistic interpretation. By the end, students have a greater appreciation for dance, and the cultural depth and diversity of the arts. More importantly, students leave with an enthusiasm to participate in this healthy and positive activity.
