Young Ballet dancers spend a lot of time in the studio — perfecting their technique, adding to their skill sets, and increasing their flexibility. At The Ridgefield School of Dance, performance opportunities are a vital part of student growth. Located in Ridgefield, CT, The Ridgefield School of Dance takes pride in turning out confident, well-rounded dancers with excellent technique, performance experience, and a true passion for expression through movement. This will be on display at the upcoming spring performance of the Cinderella Ballet on Saturday, June 11 at 7 p.m., with an evening performance of Act I, and a full performance of the Ballet on Sunday, June 12 at 1:30 p.m. Both performances will take place at the Ridgefield High School.
Providing student performance opportunities is an important part of a dancer’s education. It also gives parents a great opportunity to see how their kids are growing and evolving. Watching your child go from doing shy plies in first position while waving timidly at the audience to executing stunning arabesques and fouette turns with the showmanship of a seasoned professional is one of the most gratifying experiences in the world — and it’s one that parents and teachers alike cherish.
As Ballet students get older and more accustomed to performing, they improve not only in skill level, but also in terms of the depth of their performances. A certain sense of comfort on the stage with fellow dancers is required to make a choreographed work come to life. While Ballet is not what most people think of as a highly collaborative endeavor — since class work is usually individually based — performances are a different story. When a classroom of dancers performs a piece of choreography, they become a team that has to trust each other in order to be successful.
Accomplished Ballet dancers are strong, agile, and confident. They perform well in the classroom and on stage, and they understand the importance of being a team player. No one exemplifies the effect of years of training and performing quite like The Ridgefield School of Dance’s advanced students. In fact, as a part of their spring performance, the school will present a full performance of the Cinderella ballet on Sunday, June 12 at 1:30 p.m. On Saturday, June 11, the upper level dancers will be featured in a special 7 p.m. evening performance of Act I of Cinderella and selections from the Jazz department. Both events will be at Ridgefield High School. You can reserve your tickets online and see for yourself what The Ridgefield School of Dance has to offer.
