On Novemeber 1st, Syracuse City Ballet came to give Van Duyn's second, third and fourth graders an introduction to the ballet, The Nutcracker. The Syracuse City Ballet talked about the history of ballet and dicussed some of the names and steps to ballet. Student volunteers were even invited up to the stage to show what they learned. Students then heard the story of the nutcracker and were invited on stage again to practice a few dance steps from the ballet. Students were excited to learn about ballet and even more excited to see the Nutcracker in a few weeks. Thank you to the Syracuse City Ballet for coming out and working with our scholars!
