‘Where’s Amy?’ at ballet mime class


“Where’s Amy?” … loving the Dance Discovery: Ballet Mime class at the Tarkington Studios. The Center’s Community Engagement Manager Julia Shildmyer-Heighway (Geist) hosted a night of learning the art of ballet mime. Through dance, mime and music each ballet story comes to life. Award winning ballet dancer and founding artistic director of the Indianapolis Ballet Conservatory, Alyona Yakovleva-Randall (Geist) shared the stories of ‘Giselle’ and ‘Cinderella.’ (Which were performed by the Moscow Festival Ballet at the Center on January 15-17) Participants had the opportunity to get to try to mime and learn valuable tips from Yakovleva-Randall and IBC Students. Everyone who attended had a new appreciation for ballet and look forward to the next Dance Discovery Program which will be ‘Celtic Dancing.’ For more info on how to attend the Dance Discovery Classes visit: thecenterfortheperformingarts.org See you there!
