Ballet for Young People

This morning I got up bright and early to be at an event at the theatre for New York City Ballet. It's called Ballet for Young People. For as much of it as I could see they showed all level dancers- starting at age 8 all the way through the older dancers who are in School of American Ballet. They showed an audition so that kids coming to see the show could prepare and see what one is like. It was also interactive where the audience could stand up and do the positions with the dancers on stage.

It was so awesome to watch, and really amazing to be behind the scenes of everyday in the theatre. Things like, the costume shop, the crossover, lockers, and even just seeing the sets for Sleeping Beauty up close was amazing! I feel very lucky to be a part of such a great company and organization!

Did you do anything this weekend that made you excited about dance? I would love to hear!
