Another post from Development Manager, Alison Hayes:
Spring at Ballet West means preparing for an incredible repertory program, rehearsing for The Little Mermaid, and the annual performance of I CAN DO. Ballet West offers a variety of free outreach programs to students to teach the importance of ballet because every child deserves an education inclusive of dance. I CAN DO is one of our most innovative programs that consists of weekly dance classes for 5th graders and each spring, about 1,000 I CAN DO dancers perform for a standing-room-only crowd at West High. This year’s performances were Tuesday March 27 and Wednesday the 28 of March at 7:30 pm. Our intent is that with an active presence in Salt Lake City communities and statewide that we will be able to cultivate and inspire new generations of artists and arts advocates.
