LIVE PERFORMANCE PACKAGE:
1. Live Performance
A 60 minute narrative ballet, performed live at a south Brooklyn venue.
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.
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.
