SPRING CONCERT INFORMATION
Since its inception in 2000, Wasatch Ballet has provided students with an exciting performance experience in front of family and friends that they anticipate with nervous excitement all year. A big part of the dance training process includes learning through performance. This experience helps build self-esteem, self-assurance, and contributes to a sense of confidence. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. On-stage experience can result in better school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future college or job opportunities. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result. Lastly, the most important benefit of the recital is the fun experience and the opportunity to make memories and friendships which will last a lifetime.
WBC offers students a professionally directed performance that allows dancers to demonstrate the results of a year’s hard work, dedication, and progress. Our Spring Concert is a unique experience because each year, our studio presents an enjoyable, original Story Ballet. The students perform at least two numbers and are often involved in other scenes, helping the story-line along.
It’s a Seussical Life!
- We will be performing one of Wasatch Ballet's beloved story ballets (with ballet, tap, and jazz), It’s a Seussical Life! A favorite of many WBC families, it is an original ballet created by Allison T Wolsey and Stephanie Saul, with all original choreography by WBC’s teachers and guest choreographers. It is loosely based on the novel, Oh, The Places You’ll Go.
- The concert will be held at the beautiful Ragan Theater at UVU on June 8 & 9 at 7:00 pm and on June 10 at 2:00 and 7:00. Because of the growth of WBC and to keep the length of the show down, we will perform the concert four times! Students in Dance Expressions through Youth 2 will perform 2 times while dancers in Intermediate 2 and above will dance in all four productions. Casting will be announced in April.
- Every class will perform at least two dances, as well as participate in other parts of the story. Students who choose to perform will need to purchase one costume per class.
