Nutcracker Fun with the University Ballet Company
Saturday, November 5, 2022
Ballet stories and an introduction to the Nutcracker Ballet with UConn's University Ballet Company.
UConn's University Ballet Company returns to the Library with a special visit to Family Storytime. We'll read a short story about dancing, then watch and listen as dancers from the company share the story of the Nutcracker and dance some brief excerpts from the ballet. You'll then have an opportunity to learn some dance steps, and pose for a photo with the dancers. We'll finish up with a craft.
Dancers from UBC come from many dance backgrounds, and are all joined by their love of ballet and commitment to sharing it with the community. . They take dance classes together and plan a number of performances each year. Their Nutcracker performance is coming up in December. For this program we'll gather in our smaller program room for a story, then walk through to the Auditorium for the performance part of the program.
