RDT's Ring Around the Rose to Present Ballet West, 1/11

Repertory Dance Theatre's "Ring Around the Rose" program presents Ballet West on January 12, 2013 at 11:00 am.

Ballet West returns as an annual favorite on the Ring Around the Rose series with a show sure to delight ages 3 to 103. The world-renowned company, celebrating their 50th Anniversary this season, will present a performance designed to give children an introduction to the art of ballet.

Using the story and characters of "The Nutcracker" Ballet West II company dancers and a narrator show the audience how the basic elements of dance, music and the visual arts combine into a complete presentation. The audience will see both a portion of "The Nutcracker", as well as hear from the dancers directly about what it takes to work in the field.

As is the case with all Ring Around the Rose shows, the performance will be "wiggle-friendly" and interactive. Children will be able to participate both from their seats in the beautiful Jeanne Wagner Theatre, and a few lucky ones will have the opportunity to dance on stage. Children and families alike won't want to miss this fun and unique show!
