Last week we celebrated 10 years of working with students in Brooklyn's public schools. Elevate @ 10!, a fundraiser for Brooklyn Ballet's Scholarship Fund, included two special performances for excited parents, fans and dance aficionados. Thanks to all who attended for celebrating with us! We're so grateful to those who gave generously to our Elevate Scholarship Fund.

“When I'm dancing, I feel as if I can express myself without being judged. I can dance the way I'm feeling.”
-Naazir Muhammad

“Lynn discovered us.”
-Shaakir Muhammad

“I love ballet, because I love expressing how I feel. When I do dance movements, I feel like I can show how happy I am doing this.”
-Amber Holland

“Everyone tells me how much I've grown, how much I've improved. When I go on to bigger and better things, I'm representing Brooklyn, and I'm proud to represent it.”
-Bhajhan, former Elevate and Brooklyn Ballet student

Spiders, Cooks and Mood Swings was presented during Brooklyn Ballet's 10th anniversary season last year as a work-in-progress. This year our hip hop, modern and ballet dancers all slip back into their characters to present the world premiere. It's great to see everyone back in rehearsal for this dance - such a large and energetic cast!
