Girl Scouts and Charlotte Youth Ballet

For many children, attending a Charlotte Youth Ballet performance is an unforgettable introduction to the world of ballet: the dazzling costumes, colorful sets, enchanting music, and storybook choreography all make for a magical experience. The Nutcracker is central to many families’ holiday traditions, and continues to inspire the next generation of dancers. Our Spring Shows are a great way to enjoy classical story book ballets as they come to life on the big stage. 

Charlotte Youth Ballet recognizes that The Girls Scouts are all about exploring the curiosity of a young mind and exposing girls to new adventures; we also know that every Girl Scout has their own talents and dreams, with that in mind,
we have created Before The Curtain just for Girl Scouts!

CYB brings together all the components that make a professional ballet performance magical: the costumes, the props, the lighting, the music and of course, the dancers and shares them with Girl Scouts in an interactive session before they watch the performance so they can explore the art and athleticism of ballet and theater in a fun and educational format. We give Girl Scouts an inside look at how it all comes together so they can confidently understand all the pieces and parts of ballet as well as live performing arts, maybe even encouraging them to try a new activity involving the theater or ballet itself!

CYB’s Before The Curtain showcases our professional and emerging student dancers, allowing Girl Scouts who attend to go behind the scenes to take a look at what is required to dance in a full length professional ballet. Girl Scouts will walk away with in-depth knowledge of performing arts, structure of a ballet, the role of props, lighting, costumes and makeup as well as an opportunity to try their skills at ballet basics and of course ask as many questions as their curiosity generates!
Girl Scouts also receive discounted tickets to CYB performances and a special patch for the event! Girl Scouts can also meet the requirements for dance and performing arts patches with their troop.

Troop Leaders: It’s easy to take part in Before The Curtain! Just complete the form below with your Name, Troop Number, Council, Level & Number of Girl Scouts attending!
