BATON ROUGE, LA — BRBT’s Youth Ballet will hold a special fundraiser performance today to help raise funds to expand their community outreach.
The special fundraising performance will take place at 1:00 p.m. at The Dancers’ Workshop, 10745 Linkwood Court.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children.
Youth Ballet performs in settings where many audience members have little or no chance to attend a live ballet performance due to physical or socio-economic limitations. The program also gives dancers an opportunity to train alongside BRBT directors and company dancers while improving dance technique and performance skills.
Each season Youth Ballet tours the Baton Rouge area performing a children's version of a classical ballet. This summer, Youth Ballet’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will present a retelling of the classic Shakespearean comedy set to the music of Felix Mendelssohn.
