Agoura Hills CA – Ballet for All Kids (BFAK), a non-profit rare dance experience that offers classical ballet training to all children (and adults) including those with special needs, is performing in a recital of “The Littlest Star” an original ballet production on Sunday, November 19, 2017, 2:30 p.m. at the Agoura Hills High School Center for the Performing Arts, located at 28545 W. Driver Avenue, Agoura Hills, CA 91301.
The philosophy behind the teaching of BFAK is to embrace each student’s particular circumstances, honor their abilities and disabilities, and celebrate their exceptional uniqueness.
This year’s production will have Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop to help tell the story, which is an original ballet based on winter fairytales written especially for Ballet for All Kids. Mallory Lewis, daughter of the beloved Shari Lewis, has carried on in her mother’s footsteps and continues to entertain children of all ages with her sidekick Lamb Chop.
“We are so extremely honored to have Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop join us this year for the ballet. Our students love then both and the feeling is mutual,” Says Bonnie Schlachte, the Director and Founder of Ballet For All Kids.
Last year, the students of Ballet for All Kids performed the Nutcracker to rave reviews, and a sold-out crowd – ushering in a new winter tradition.
“Putting on the ballet performance is a monumental task from lighting design to costume fittings and over a hundred student volunteers from schools across the San Fernando Valley and Thousand Oaks, who give extra support to those children with special needs that might require help performing in front of a live audience,” states Ms. Schlachte.
Ballet for All Kids mission is to provide classical ballet education to all children, regardless of ability. Students learn techniques through a specialized methodology designed to use their unique abilities as a springboard to learning ballet.
They are located in Agoura Hills and Encino. For further information or to order tickets visit www.balletforallkids.org or call: 805-524-5503.
