Jumping, Twirling, Scurrying… students are dancing all parts of the exciting ballet, “The Nutcracker” in ballet class this month. Mice, snowflakes, battles, and flowers all inflame our imagination this time of year, and music inspires us to dance, dance, dance. Classes continue through December 20, the week before Christmas, and the second semester begins the second week of January. We always look forward to start work on our recital in January, and preparing for the new session of Kinderballet.
Kinderballet is in the midst of a great performing season with “A Christmas Carol”. The first performance given at the Groesbeck Library was amazing, presenting Charles Dickens’ story in an hour, holding children and adults spellbound, and giving us a true taste of the Christmas spirit. Performances were already held at Batesville, Indiana, and December 13th will perform at North Dearborn Library, Indiana. On December 14th, we are performing at St. Dominic’s school. The performing season for these young dancers is active and exciting, showing their love for their art! The final performances December 20th, is in Vevay, Indiana, and later that day a repeat performance in Rising Sun. The next day we perform at Boone County Library, Kentucky. The senior members of the company set the standard high for the entrance members. Our senior members teach during the week, and still amaze us with moving and powerful performances. Where do they get the enery and the time? It must be their love and dedication to the art of ballet!
And I have missed seeing my students on Saturday mornings, since they are off performing! Students not in Kinderballet have taken advantage of the time to make up missed classes, and take an extra class with just a few other student. One more week of class before the holidays, so take an extra ballet class Saturday at 9 am.
I’m thrilled to start this blog and send studio news far and wide- let me know if you are reading this, and tell me about what you want me to write. Are you interested in ballet education? History about our studio? News about the future?
I plan on entering pictures of students and the new studio. LOVE the new studio space with the parent observation area. Students want to move and breathe in the light friendly space we now call home.
Join us in the NEW YEAR!!!
Happy Holidays, Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!
