Children’s Ballet Theatre
Saturday, Aug 2, 2014 – 1:00 to 2:00 pm MICA Stage

For over 30 years, at their home studios in Old Town, Lansing, the Children’s Ballet Theatre of Michigan (CBT) has thrilled mid-Michigan audiences with the talent and exuberance of its young dancers, ages 8 to 18. Best known for its annual Nutcracker performances during Thanksgiving weekend, the company also performs classic ballets such as Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Swan Lake as well as original contemporary works in an annual spring show.

Dancers study technique at their regular home dance studios, then work with CBT to create memorable, fun performances. Under the direction of Artistic Director Gregory George, they learn more than classical ballet. They also participate in creating their own choreography and exploring the inner artist. This diversity will be reflected in their performance at the Lansing JazzFest, where the CBT dancers will present an eclectic mélange of classical and contemporary ballet.
