Review for Houston Ballet Foundation, Houston, TX, USA
I teach in a school where student exposure to the Arts is limited. When I first proposed the idea of an after school dance program with the Houston Ballet, my principal was skeptical but relented when I promised to take care of all the details. The Houston Ballet provided two dancers/teachers and a pianist who met with the students weekly. They taught the students so much more than dance -- they taught respect, discipline, manners, cooperation, science and responsibility. When the students performed for their families and teachers, they brought the house down. Their most enthusiastic supporter turned out to be the principal who could not praise their efforts enough. This was a wonderful opportunity and I would gladly have the Houston Ballet on our campus all year, year after year.
