FLINT, MI–Tonight, the Young People’s Ballet Theatre gives its first major performance with new artistic directors Nicholas and Laura Schultz–and Flint Journal has a sneak peek into the preparatory process.
Photographer Lauren Justice captured video footage of the Young People’s Ballet Theatre students practicing for their 25th Annual Ballet. The show has two productions: “Bottom of the Ninth,” which depicts the world of 1940s women baseball with music, dancing and acting, and “Goodnight Moon,” which retells a classic children’s bed time story with dancing.
Performances are at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday; 7 p.m. on Friday, March 8; 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 9; and 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 10. Each of the performances are at University of Michigan-Flint Theatre, 303 E. Kearsley St., Flint, and admission is $12 for adults and $10 for children.
The Schultzes took over the program in September, when founder Denise Paavola retired after 25 years of leadership.
