WHAT IS DISCOVER DANCE?
Discover Dance is an opportunity for students to learn and develop through an in-theatre ballet experience. This program is focused on creating opportunities for youth to come together and engage in local arts. Through this program, students are given a glimpse of the creative process behind staging a live ballet, as well as a closer look at the associated production’s story and the meaning behind the movements.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Throughout the 2018-2019 season, deserving students in Calgary and Edmonton will be invited to the Jubilee Auditoria for special presentations of The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and the Drum. Students will watch an in-theatre presentation of Alberta Ballet dancers taking class on-stage, engage in a Q&A period with Alberta Ballet Artistic Staff and watch an in-costume rehearsal of the current production.
The Discover Dance program for The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker reach students in grades 2 through 6. For the Discover Dance program of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and the Drum, an older audience - students in grades 5 through 12 - will be invited.
