Humanities Iowa to Support Ballet Quad Cities “Dance Me a Story: Exploring Literature Through Ballet”

dance-filler-pic    We are proud to announce Ballet Quad Cities has been awarded a Humanities Iowa grant of $5,000 for our “Dance Me a Story” project. “Dance Me a Story: Exploring Literature through Ballet,” is free to the public and allows people of all ages to explore literature through ballet!

What is “Dance Me a Story”?

Implemented in 2014, “Dance Me a Story” complements Ballet Quad Cities’ season with public programs that tie together ballet performances and the literature that inspires the choreography. Participants first learn how the literature inspires the choreographer and dancers, then they see
costumes, head pieces, props and pointe shoes-all important elements to bring the story to life, and then we all dance!
