Dancers from five county elementary schools will perform their versions of “Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in a special partnership with the Ballet Theatre of Maryland on Tuesday, April 4.
Students from Brooklyn Park, Piney Orchard, Overlook, Riviera Beach, and Rolling Knolls elementary schools will perform along with BTM dancers as part of the Ballet Theatre of Maryland Arts Integration Concert at 7 p.m. at North County High School. The event is the culmination of a multi-discipline project that has involved story writing, visual arts, and dance. Students used arts integration to create a story ballet segment, dialogue, props, choreography and an informative speaker presentation. Throughout the process they have been mentored by professional dancers with Ballet Theatre of Maryland.
The project is funded by the AACPS office of Health, Physical Education and Dance, and the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County. The project was created and organized by former AACPS Dance Consultant Judi Fey, and Dianna Cuatto, artistic director of Ballet Theatre of Maryland.
Admission is free.
