From the Page to the Stage

From the Page to the Stage is a school assembly that happens in your school.  We challenge you to fill the space (cafeteria, gym, etc.) with as many students as possible to experience the beauty of ballet! 

Colorado Ballet Studio Company dancers perform excerpts from ballets based on folk tales and literary classics all while taking you through the timeline of ballet.  From the fantastical love stories of the Romantic Era, to the grand costuming and music of the Classica Era, to the free movement of the Modern Era, students will watch as stories and history come to life through the world of ballet.  Schools will also have the chance to see a brief excerpt from one of Colorado Ballet’s 2017-2018 productions: Dracula, The Nutcracker, and Romeo & Juliet!

Topics discussed will include: how stories are translated into dance, a brief history of ballet, pointe shoe FAQ, male roles in dance and much more. The assembly will conclude with a Q & A with dancers from students (and teachers!) in the audience. 

Compatible with all grade levels 
Availability: October 2017 and January 2018
Cost: $300 for one show, $500 for two shows
