Connecticut Ballet provides a Curricular Guide for Teachers specific to each 'Share the Magic' offering.
I CAN identify the ways in which the dancers and choreographer collaborate to create a narrative story ballet. I CAN better understand the creative process of expressing emotions and story lines using the human body and gestures from everyday life.
Now in its ninth season, the 'Share the Magic' performance attended by students in grades 2-4 is the same format: a fully-professional ballet performance condensed to 75 minutes. The narration by Artistic Director Brett Raphael describes the characters in the story ballet and enables students to connect with their individual movements and relationships within the plot. Raphael describes the creative process of making the ballet, the production process involving lighting designers, costume designers, stagehands, and rehearsal assistants, and the company performs short excerpts before performing the entire work. At the close, students and educators as questions of principal dancers about being a full-time professional dancer and different aspects of the ballets on view.
Busing is the responsibility of each attending school. The programs sell out in the Fall of each year so it is important to get your booking in early. The specific ballet to be performed will be announced in the Fall of 2017.
