Here is a quick video that my husband and I shot yesterday. Robert Ivey Ballet is putting together videos for each dance/music/art segment and I sent this to them for use in their video.
Two nights ago, I got to see the dancers rehearsing and listen to the orchestra practicing. It is the Youth Orchestra, and these kids were great!!! I also met the other artists (everyone was very friendly), and I came away from that production meeting completely buzzed with energy and excitement. This event is truly about the WHOLE experience. It's not just about the ballet, or the music, or the art - it's about the total experience of seeing three of the basic art forms come together. It's about reaching for your dreams, and visualizing something and then making it happen. These kids in the ballet and the orchestra are just awesome and they work HARD. The professionals who are there are leading the way, supporting the kids, having fun, and pursuing our dreams as well. It's very exciting. :)
