Spring is an exciting time around here at MLKBallet, with classes back in full swing and MOVE! #21 right around the corner!
The end of our Winter Session was celebrated with Family Observation Days. It was a lot of fun to see the kids working hard and showing great pride in their dancing. Many thanks to our instructors for all of their dedication, and to our volunteers for their support.
Our Adult/Teen Open Ballet students have been enjoying the sunny studio as it stays light later into the evening. This class will be on break after May 5th, so join us soon!
W.I.P. (Works In Progress)
Monday, April 21st, 7:30-8:30pm, $5, Urban Grace Studio
This will be the second installment of this series, in partnership with the Barefoot Collective. This event is a works-in-progress studio series for performing arts including dance, music, spoken word, theater, and more. This is a chance for artists to perform new and in-process works for a small audience in a relaxed atmosphere. For audience members, this is an opportunity to experience live theater and get a rare glimpse into the creative process of artists in all types of performing arts. At the end of the evening there is an opportunity to give and exchange constructive feedback in the Q&A between the audience and the artists. This is an excellent opportunity to get your work seen, connect with other artists and receive feedback!
Held in the dance studio at Urban Grace, (enter through side door off 9th, up the stairwell to the 3rd floor). For performing inquiries, please contact April Nyquist, email@example.com
