Ballet Northwest invites first through fifth graders to free dance performance

Ballet Northwest invites students in first through fifth grade an opportunity to attend a free 2017 Dance Outreach Performance on Thursday, May 11 at 10 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. at the Washington Center for Performing Arts in Olympia.

The program features a short introduction to the art of ballet and a selection of dances performed by the cast of Ballet Northwest’s spring production of Tchaikovsky’s “The Sleeping Beauty,” with full sets and costumes.

Ballet Northwest will pay the cost of busing students to and from the WCPA as part of the Dance Outreach performance on May 11. The organization offers this educational opportunity as part of its mission to promote the art of dance in the community. This program is made possible with the support of The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound and the Nisqually Indian Tribe.

Seating is limited at the Washington Center for Performing Arts. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like your students to attend the 2017 Dance Outreach Performance, please contact Bob Hodges, principal on special assignment, at
