Wild, Wonderful West Virginia!
Brooklyn Ballet travelled to West Virginia from November 1-3, 2014 to perform and teach master classes.
The performance featured special guest dancers Emily Oleson (Professor of Dance at Davis & Elkins), Matthew Olwell, and members of the Appalachian Ensemble String Band, alongside excerpts of Brooklyn Ballet signature dance pieces such as “Spiders Cooks and Mood Swings”, and “The Brooklyn Nutcracker”. There were over 450 audience members in attendance.
Brooklyn Ballet company members taught four master classes in ballet and hip-hop to 87 students, and had a wonderful time touring D & E's gorgeous campus. A big thank you to Davis & Elkins for hosting Brooklyn Ballet's residency!
