Around the World in 7 Dances will introduce elementary and middle school students to the different cultures found on the world’s seven continents. Not only will your students be exposed to ballet from each continent, but they will also learn about language, music, food, and local customs. Each performance lasts for approximately 45 minutes and is followed by a 15 minute question and answer session with our dancers. Studio A is interactive, bringing students onstage for demonstrations throughout the show. It provides a unique opportunity for students to observe the creativity and excitement of Houston Ballet in our studios.
Studio Series performances are offered free of charge to all Houston-area schools and accommodate a maximum of 150 students per show.
