March Theme: Love Never Fails
March Tuition is now due: Pay by March 10 to avoid the $15 late fee!
Calendar Notes: NO ballet April 4-8
A Decade of Dance is Coming!!! Be sure to join us for one of our Company’s productions of A Decade of Dance which will feature excerpts from Sleeping Beauty, Four Seasons and Tarantella as we celebrate our Company’s 10th anniversary. This is a great way to support these dancers as they seek to use their abilities and talents to glorify God and to support our ballet school. The young as well as the young at heart will enjoy this classic filled with beautiful dancing, music and colorful costumes. Be sure to invite your neighbors and friends! Tickets may be purchased at the door or by going to www.perimeterballet.com
While you may be more familiar with Sleeping Beauty, you may not know that The Four Seasons, composed in 1723, is one of Baroque legend Vivaldi’s most famous works for the violin. It takes the audience on a journey through the changing seasons-the newness of spring, the passion of summer, the calmness of autumn and the chill of winter. Witness the power of our Creator brought to life through dance! Tarantella is a lively ballet choreographed by George Balanchine in 1964 to American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk’s Grand Tarantelle, Op. 67, composed from 1858-1864. Balanchine turned an Italian folk dance based on a myth about spiders into a seven minute powerhouse of a ballet accompanied by tambourines.
A ticket is good for any one performance so you don’t have to decide now which performance to attend.
Recital Reminder: With teachers working on recital dances, attendance in March and April is very important! Moms, you will soon receive your recital volunteer assignment. If you are unable to do what is requested, please find another mom to switch with you and let the ballet office know of the change.
Professional Pictures: Friday, April 29 - 2:00-6:00 in the Upstairs Studio
Mission Support: By now many of you know that some of our Company dancers will be returning to Belarus this summer to conduct a dance intensive from June 10-20. This is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to those who are attending a government run school. But, this team could use your financial as well as prayer support. If you would like to support them financially, go to www.perimeter.org/global and choose Belarus for online giving or drop a check, made payable to Perimeter Church and noted for Belarus mission trip, in the ballet deposit slot. And again, this team would appreciate your prayer support as they seek to be salt and light to those they will work with and meet in Belarus.
