Del Mar Ballet is proud to be a Community Partner with Girls Scouts of American and offer fun and educational programs to our local Girl Scouts of San Diego troops. In these workshops, beginning dancers will learn a variety of dance techniques, including ballet, jazz, and folk dance, as well as participating in an interactive learning segment dedicated to a particular classical ballet or contemporary piece of choreography. After learning the history of a given work, they will have the opportunity to work creatively in groups in a guided choreography session to come up with their own interpretation of the piece, which they will perform for at the end of the workshop. This program is designed to introduce young people to dance as a way to be more active, build confidence, and express themselves creatively. Girl Scout troops also receive special group rates for all Del Mar Ballet performances.
