Review for Houston Ballet Foundation, Houston, TX, USA
Being an elementary music teacher in Fort Bend ISD, I was overjoyed to find out about the amazing Ballet Talks program that the Houston Ballet offers. Not only is this program no charge for the school, but the Speakers bring props, costumes, and other such accoutrements for the students to experience while watching the Ballet. Most importantly, the presenters bring a high energy that is captivating to students of any age, allowing them all to experience the Ballet to their fullest potential.
Since the Fall of 2015, this program has reached over 900 students in my school, from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Each student was given the opportunity to not only have an amazing cultural experience, but also an opportunity to learn about how different elements of art (physical , dancing, musical) come together to create a beautiful experience. Many of my students have never seen a ballet, much less had the opportunity to touch a ballet toe shoe.
The Ballet Talks has been an amazing opportunity for the students on my campus, and we look forward to our future visits and collaborations with the Houston Ballet.
