What’s Happening in November…

October flew on by; welcome November! This will be a busy month for The Children’s Ballet as we begin our Nutcracker study and prepare to put on our production of The Nutcracker. We are extra grateful and excited for the opportunity to share dance with all of our amazing students, families, and community (and be back onstage for the first time in a year!). This production would not be possible without the generosity of Robyn Wenrich and our title sponsor, Elijah Burk with Values Drive Realty.


Tickets for The Children’s Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker are on sale now! Seats in the Danville High School will be limited due to social distancing, so get them before they are gone. Adult tickets are $20 and children 12 and under are $12. Younger children (who will sit on laps) are free. You will purchase the amount of tickets you need and be assigned seats based on the size of your group. Seats will be assigned in the order in which they are purchased. Face coverings will be required for entry to the school.Nutcracker Holiday Tea :: Join us for high tea before each show at Court House Grounds in Danville. You’ll enjoy delicious food and featured teas from Our SpecialTEA. Kids can make a craft to take home, and get pictures with Nutcracker characters. Tickets are $25 each (sold separately from shows) and seats are limited!

In Miss Emily’s classes last month, we had fun with Halloween dances, which included a parachute, leaping over a “mud puddle”, having Halloween fun by dancing as witches, skeletons, and ghosts
(ask your students which was their favorite!), and learning how to tell stories through dance with Hansel and Gretel. The featured music for our traditional Halloween dance is the famous piece for violin and orchestra “Danse Macabre” by Saint-Saens. Did you know the violin is purposefully tuned off key to make this piece sound more eerie?


Battement tendu: the working foot slides from the first or fifth position to the second or fourth position without lifting the toe from the ground. Both knees must be kept straight. When the foot reaches the  position pointe tendu, it then returns to original position. No noodle knees!


In order to keep students (and teachers) healthy throughout the winter months, please keep students at home from dance if they are feeling ill. The Children’s Ballet follows the Danville School System for closings due to weather. We will also keep you informed via Facebook for closings.
