Ajkun Ballet Theatre, a New York City based professional ballet company, invites children of Westchester County, grades Pre-K – 8, to participate in our 2016 production of Carmen. Children partake in rehearsals of dance or theater (child’s choice, divided by age) at a local venue taught by AjkunBT’s Professional Artists on Saturdays throughout March and April. In April participants perform alongside artists of Ajkun Ballet Theatre in this original choreography adapted by Co-Artistic Director Chiara Ajkun after Bizet’s opera. AjkunBT’s Staff is committed to making this experience a unique and enjoyable one for all children, with or without previous training.
Registration is limited. A suggested donation of $40 for your child’s participation will help cover the cost of instructor’s transportation to and from New Rochelle.
Rehearsals will be held on Saturday mornings, from 11am-1pm (classes divided by age) beginning on March 12, 2016 at the Isaac E. Young Middle School. The program will culminate in the Young Dancers participation in Ajkun Ballet Theatre’s professional production of Carmen at the New Rochelle High School’s Whitney Auditorium on April 8 & 9, 2016.
