This morning FBP has it’s first performance of The Sleeping Beauty, one in which the audience will be filled with (mostly) excited school children attending the show as part of our Discover Dance program.  The company holds one or two performances during school hours and invites elementary-high schools around the area to catch the show for a reduced very rate, allowing schools the otherwise unattainable opportunity to see a full-length ballet being performed by a professional company on a real stage.  For some kids this could mean the field trip from hell, but for other eager young spectators, this could be the first date in their love affair with ballet!  So MERDE dancers, and may you perform,ignite, and inspire the future of dance this morning!  Can’t wait to watch you from the audience!
