Happy February! Since we are passionate about investing into the whole person, and want to give education to our artists, we require our students to participate in dance history classes, whereby they learn about famous ballets, influential dancers, and the history of the art that we all love so much. Not only does this knowledge inspire our students, but it also equips them with a deeper understanding and context for what they may one day perform or support.
Swan Lake, composed by Tchaikovsky in 1875-1876, is the ballet of the month. JAC students will be observing this famous ballet for the month of February.
