Young People’s Ballet Theatre rehearses for 25th Annual Ballet

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.
