Gwinnett Theatre Ballerinas Performed for Crowd of 200 at Five Forks Library
Library goers experienced a very special appearance by performers of the Gwinnett Ballet Theatre in November. Jaime Robtison, Artistic Director of the Gwinnett Ballet Theatre, and 16 young dancers came to the Five Forks Branch to perform five short selections from The Nutcracker. Performances included an abridged version of the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, as well as visits from the Snow Queen, Russian, Chinese, and Spanish dancers.
The dancing was followed by a very enthusiastic question and answer session. The children in the audience were curious about how long the dancers had been studying ballet and made a lot of comments about their interest in the dancer’s costumes. About 200 customers, ranging from young children to senior citizens, attended the event. For more information about library programs, please visit www.gwinnettpl.org, or call (770)-978-5154.
