Exploring Literature Through Ballet
We are proud to announce Ballet Quad Cities has been awarded a Humanities Iowa grant of $5,000 for our "Dance Me a Story" project. Dance Me a Story: Exploring Literature through Ballet, is free to the public and allows people of all ages to explore literature through ballet!
Implemented in 2014, Dance Me a Story complements Ballet Quad Cities' season with public programs that tie together ballet performances and the literature that inspires the choreography. Participants first learn how the literature inspires the choreographer and dancers, then they see costumes, head pieces, props and pointe shoes-all important elements to bring the story to life, and then we all dance!
