Hylton at Home Story Corner: American Ballet Theatre Presents: “Boys Dance!”
March 20 @ 10:15 am - 11:00 amFree
The Hylton Performing Arts Center and the Prince William Public Library System have joined forces to present Hylton at Home Story Corner: “Boys Dance!” a free virtual performing arts story time on Saturday, March 20 at 10:15 a.m. This digital event is part of the new Hylton at Home series, a curated platform of digital arts experiences that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home.
Boys who love to dance are center stage in this encouraging, positive, rhyming picture book about guys who love to pirouette, jeté, and plié. Created in partnership with the American Ballet Theatre and with the input of their company’s male dancers, here is a book that shows ballet is for everyone.
Each story time will be pre-recorded and premiere on both the Hylton Center and Prince William Public Library’s social media channels at 10:15 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. The library will prepare reader advisories for each book that list similar books children and families may want to explore. This Hylton at Home Story Corner will be read by Joshua Burnham, Principal Dancer/Assistant Ballet Master (Manassas Ballet Theatre).
Written by John Robert Allman, illustrated by Luciano Lozano
“Boys Dance!” will be available to watch beginning Saturday, March 20 at 10:15 a.m. ET simultaneously on this webpage, the Hylton Center Facebook page, and YouTube channel. It will be available to watch until June 30, 2021.
