This performance was excellent. As a first-year homeschool mom, I was so thrilled to learn about the Educational Performances and was not disappointed. ~Homeschool parent
I did not think I was going to enjoy Ballet but watching the dancer’s on-stage was amazing! Thank you for allowing me as a student to ask questions. I loved learning that the dancers are living their dream. ~11th Grade Student
The Innovative Works Educational Performance was an incredible educational opportunity for my Middle Schoolers. The performance was geared for this age group and allowed students to watch the dancers up close on their home stage. We’ll definitely be back.~7th Grade CMS Educator
