Each StoryBook Ballet is written to cover selected Virginia Department of Education SOLs. StoryBooks are presented in a variety of locations including schools, pre-schools, regional and county librarys, cultural arts and community centers, churches, and as part of larger community and cultural events and programs. A reading challenge is presented to all child attendees … read 2 books, then email or write the Ballet with the names of the books you read, and receive a complimentary ticket to the ballet!

At the conclusion of a StoryBook Ballet, children have an opportunity to meet the characters and have photos taken with them. Organizations, PTAs, civic groups, schools, youth groups, other agencies and groups may contract with the Concert Ballet to bring a Storybook to their institution or locality.

Many organizations and groups use a StoryBook Ballet for a fundraiser. To schedule a StoryBook Ballet, or to learn more about how to bring one to your community, email us or call 804-798-0945.
