Ballet West came to Riverview Elementary. They taught the students different dance techniques, then asked the students to try them, and TRY them they did! The movements were a lot more difficult than the students thought!
Ballet West performed some of their dances from Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Puss in Boots.The dancers came out in costume, and the students did not make a sound- as the dancers mesmerized the students, with their ability to spin on their toes, maintain perfect balance and leap high into the air.
Afterwards, students were able to ask questions about what the life of a ballerina is like. The dancers told the students that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication! They told the students to work hard and stay away from bad influences.
Thanks, Ballet West!
