About the Performance
Join MCB School Ensemble for Ballet for Young People, an interactive, behind-the-scenes look at the art of ballet. Students will learn how ballet began, what it takes to become a professional ballet dancer, and how a ballet is created. Ballet for Young People features excerpts from MCB's repertoire, including Marius Petipa’s famed fairy-tale ballet The Sleeping Beauty, featuring Puss N’ Boots, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood. George Balanchine’s Salute to the U.S.A. will also be featured, including the high-spirited Stars and Stripes with all-American costumes, sets and music, danced to the patriotic marches of John Philip Sousa.
This performance will offer accessible accommodations for individuals with Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The theater will provide an accepting and inclusive environment, modifications to sound and lighting, noise canceling headsets, and a quiet room.
