Peter and the Wolf Comes to the Hylton Performing Arts Center {Academy of Russian Ballet}

I'm so very excited to share with you the Northern Virginia Youth Ballet and the Academy of Russian Ballet's perfomance of Peter and the Wolf. We were privileged to see these amazing performers in The Nutcracker this past winter, and were thoroughly impressed. The NVYB is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for young dancers to perform and grow as dancers. One of the things that particularly struck me about this ballet company was the dancers themselves, after they done with the Ballet. My daughter, who is by nature more introverted, was bound and determined to meet some of the dancers. So, we went up to them. They bent down and spoke to her and took pictures. They were completely comfortable with that and it really touched me deeply. The talent in this company for the young age of the dancers is wonderful, and you can tell that there is extreme dedication happening. As someone who has ballet in their blood, these are all things that I look for, and I just can't help it. I find myself look at the small details that most people wouldn't notice. Is there a sickled foot, is it winged up in arabesque? I know I know, I realize I might just have lost you there, but I'm a ballet geek what can I say!

 



If you are looking for something to do this Friday consider snagging tickets for this excellent production. Bonus: Military families are provided a discount. Just makes me love this organization more. That's not something that they are required to do or even have to do. But it is a window into generosity that makes me want to patronize a company or organization more.

Very family friendly production and a fun way to spend the evening together!
