Tiny ballerinas pranced around in tutus Aug. 4 to Aug. 9, in preparation for their “Sleeping Beauty” performance in front of their families.
Six campers, ages 3 to 6, met from noon to 3 p.m. each day and made an activity book that included ballet terminology and the story of “Sleeping Beauty.” They learned basic ballet steps and practiced their dance for an hour each day.
