The SBC is proud to host a Girl Scouts Workshop for Daisy Girl Scouts, Brownie Girl Scouts and Junior Girl Scouts troops in the Central Illinois Council. Through an interactive movement class and by attending a live dance performance in a professional theater, Brownie Girl Scouts will *earn the Brownie Dancer Badge, and Daisy Girl Scouts and Junior Girl Scouts can earn a dance fun patch. *Badges and patches can be purchased at the Trefoil Boutique. All participants will also receive a Springfield Ballet Company patch to add to their collection!

This unique program brings the scouts ON STAGE at Sangamon Auditorium prior to our production of Cinderella and introduces them to variety of dance styles. Using a hands-on format, Artistic Director Julie Ratz, Ballet Mistress Gina DeCroix Russell, and current SBC dancers teach scouts the basic movement elements of ballet. They also discuss costuming, dancer training, performance preparation, terminology, history and the technical elements of a dance performance. The interactive workshop explores the dynamics of dance from line and design, to rhythm, musicality, emotion, story line and pantomime. Scouts also learn about appropriate audience behavior and what to expect when they attend our live performance!

Workshop participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing (skirts should be avoided) and socks or ballet shoes, if available.

The Springfield Ballet Company’s Girl Scouts Workshop is $25 per participant. This includes**: the 30-minute workshop, preshow activities, supplemental educational materials and one student ticket to SBC’s performance of Cinderella. **Please note: The cost of the scout badge is not included in this fee. Badge purchases will need to be arranged by troop leaders. However, the exclusive SBC patch IS included in the workshop fee!

And for every 10 participants, we will provide the troop leader with one complimentary adult ticket to the performance! (Additional adult tickets can be purchased on the registration form.)

Registration will close on Monday, March 18, 2019, or when we reach a capacity of 150 participants.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s workshop and performance of Cinderella!
