2020 LIVE PERFORMANCE PACKAGE: 

1. Live Performance

"The Secret Garden"

March 11 & 12, 2019 at 10:30am

The ballet, 60 minutes in length, is inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s children’s story about a secret and mysterious garden that heals the hearts of three broken people.

2. Student Movement Workshop

Prior to the live performance, a CBT teaching artist travels to the school for a forty-five minute student workshop or master class. Students experience the dance techniques used in the performance, learn background about the ballet and learn some of the ballet’s choreography too.

 

3. Meet-the-Artist

Immediately following the live performance, students have a chance to meet the professional dancers to talk about their dance careers in an informative, fun Q & A meeting that lasts 30-45 minutes.
