Charm City Ballet presents
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
"Performing a dance that you have spent months practicing on, in front of a group of people, is extremely rewarding. With virtual learning, it was way harder to learn ballet, and I feel like over virtual learning my skills decreased. It felt harder to do and less rewarding. I'm so glad to be back in the classroom!"
"Super thankful that I get to be back on stage dancing with CCB. Not being on stage with CCB last year hit really hard….it feels amazing to be back with my CCB family. Hopeful that next year brings the same!"
"I haven't performed onstage in a real auditorium since I was a senior in high school, and I'm a sophomore in college now! It was nerve wracking at first, but -masked or not- I couldn't believe how much I've missed performing. Charm City Ballet, thank you for a fun, high-quality, and well-run ACC. I can't wait for everyone to see the show!"
"Being back on stage after almost two years is incredible. Performing is the most thrilling part of being a dancer. It's where you see all your hard work pay off! Dancing in a mask is obviously not ideal, but I'd rather keep myself, fellow dancers, and audience members safe than risk the health of those I love. One of the things I'm most excited about being back on stage is the comradery the dancers have backstage. We all work so hard together to put on the show, and the energy and community cultivated throughout the rehearsal process really comes together during tech week and show day! Finally, it's so exciting to perform in front of a live audience. The energy we get from a live audience is irreplicable virtually."
