Whew! We have been busy. Members of The Philadelphia Youth Ballet have now completed five community events – performing Nutcracker excerpts at Barnes & Noble, Headhouse Square’s Winter Wonderland this past Sunday, and at local schools throughout the area.
These events serve many purposes. Not only do PYB dancers get the opportunity to connect with their communities, but they get the benefit of additional performance practice – always a welcome thing. Practicing performance presence is one of the wonderful things about PYB. Dancers have the opportunity to hone skills like maintaining a professional demeanor despite the challenges that sometimes come with live performance. A perfect example of this very thing happened at Winter Wonderland. A dancer lost her skirt halfway through Marzipan! Did she stop? Did she get upset? Certainly not. She kicked it to the side and kept on dancing, smiling even more. We were very proud of the way she dealt with this obstacle.
Don’t miss PYB members perform in The Nutcracker, at Prince Music Theater December 14-16. Tickets here.
Philadelphia Youth Ballet members, along with their cast mates, are busy preparing for our 3rd annual Nutcracker, playing at the Prince Music Theater December 14-16. One of our goals is always to search for additional performance opportunities for our PYB dancers. This fall, we have been invited to perform Nutcracker excerpts at several community events throughout the city. Here’s our current schedule. Please join us at our public events. We love to see PDA families in the audience.
