Ballet Gala and Children's Ballet Theatre

The 1st Annual Ballet Gala was a sold out success! We are so excited about this first event and the many more to come.
Announced at this event was the exciting new endeavor being taken on by TDAC's Ballet Program.

The Children's Ballet Theatre will start August 2011. This performance arm of the Ballet Program will allow students plenty of opportunity to perform classic ballets for the community in outreach events and live full length performances.
CBT will run January - November. Students will follow the TDAC Ballet Program curriculum and be a student at TDAC and a member of CBT. More to come!!

Students from Variations Class performed a soloist variation from a classic ballet.

We had such wonderful goodies from local vendors in the community!
Thank you..... Pink Sugar Bowl, Pie Sensations, Molly Voorhis homemade/drawn ballerina cookies, Cake Pops, and much more.

Thank you to all our volunteers who help create this wonderful event!!
Lacy Day, Tiffani Day, Patty Wilde, Terri Campbell, Tammy Wilder, and of course our dancers and amazing Ballet Mistress, Chelsea Howell and her MC husband James Howell.

We are so excited not only for our 1st Annual Ballet Gala, but also a huge announcement for the TDAC Ballet Program. You're not going to want to miss this wonderful evening of ballet! Students from the Program's Variations class will each perform a selected Variation. After the performance patrons will have an opportunity to hear more about the Ballet Program and the new direction it is going, mingle with the students and instructors, as well as, snack on some yummy deserts provided from local artisans.
