River City Ballet offers an educational Lecture-Demonstration program. Our program is flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs and ages of the audience and the time frame available.

The content of our program may consist of any combination of the following components along with the performance.

¤  A short history of ballet
¤  The dedication it takes to become a professional dancer
¤  Careers in dance
¤  Men in dance
¤  Pointe shoes
¤  Nutrition
¤  Ballet pantomime
¤  A short demonstration of class work with dancers of River City Ballet
¤  Audience participation
¤  Question and answer session

We can also include supplementary educational print material prior to the Lec-Dem for teachers to use as needed.

Special consideration can be given to match an existing or upcoming school program.

We would be happy to speak with you about our Lecture-Demostration program. For questions about our program please call 425-7454 or you can email Walt Strange, RCB Company Manager: walt@rivercityballet-ky.org
