Ballet Program Students took a field trip last week to see Nashville Ballet's Giselle. We had 25 in attendance, all dressed to the nines, and well behaved. We are so proud of our ballet students and their theater etiquette. Our children's instructor Ms. Alex Meister was part of the performance cast as a peasant girl. Students stayed for an hour long question and answer after the performance. What a great experience.

Ballet 2 student Savannah Pelkey wrote a review on Giselle:

" My favorite part of the ballet Giselle is when she, her love, and all the maidens were in a long line making a circle. I thought it was so neat and beautiful, especially how it was on pointe shoes and they didn't even look like anyone messed up. Another part was when the maidens were in a line and then Giselle went on pointe in arabesque.

From watching Giselle I can make a lot of improvements. She had her stomached sucked in so much it looked great and how relaxed she was with her arms they look very gentle but strong."

Ballet students will be attending a performance of Nutcracker by Ballet Memphis this December. If you are unable to attend that performance be sure to see Nashville Ballet's Nutcracker or watch the DVD!
