Ballet West for Children – Ballet and the Sleeping Beauty 2020

This lecture demonstration is designed to give elementary school audiences an introduction to the art of ballet as well as address key dance core-curriculum and life skills concepts. This year’s presentation, titled Ballet and The Sleeping Beauty includes a lecture demonstration, student participation, and a condensed performance of The Sleeping Beauty ballet.

Prior to the performance, teachers receive a packet with general ballet information, etiquette, glossary, illustrations, bibliography and specific information about The Sleeping Beauty ballet to help prepare the students and teachers for the presentation. All packets include follow-up projects and activities which assist teachers with their efforts to incorporate the Utah State Core Curriculum in their classroom.

Free Getting the Pointe zoom workshops are available to enhance your classroom experience connecting to Core Curriculum, life skills and career and college readiness concepts.
