About the Program
Become a part of the tale, and experience ballet like never before inside a world of enchantment and mystery!
In an imaginative and immersive contemporary ballet performance, Ghost Light Masquerade sets a traveling stage echoing with untold tales inspired by age-old superstitions. Inspired by the Ghost Light, a singular bulb left illuminated on an empty stage to ward off mischievous spirits that haunt all theaters alike, GLM is an immersive style performance, where there is no dedicated seating and audiences share the same space as the performers.
Unveil the Veil: Embrace the intrigue as the stage is set for an ethereal masquerade. Behind the veils of darkness, secrets and specters come to life, weaving a spellbinding tale entangled within the world of theater superstitions.
Dance with the Shadows: Witness ballet in its most captivating form, where graceful movements entwine with hauntingly beautiful choreography. Let the shadows and Spirits guide you through an otherworldly dance experience.
Unmask the Unknown: Don your most enigmatic mask, or share one of ours, and join the procession of lost souls. As the night unfolds, the boundaries blur between reality and fantasy, and you become an integral part of this haunting narrative.
Illuminate the Darkness: Amidst the flickering glow of the Ghost Light, immerse yourself in a surreal ambiance where every step echoes with a thousand untold stories.
Become an everlasting part of the Ghost Light Masquerade – a night of ballet and mystery that will linger in your heart long after the final flicker falls. See you there!
**Chairs and seating accommodations will be made available as necessary for those who need it
What is Arts-Integration?Arts Integration combines visual and performing arts standards and common core subject matter to create programming that connects kids with the arts, all while reinforcing classroom knowledge in a fun and creative way! Programs like Ballet Machine are created with the help of teachers and education professionals, vetted by Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Departments for adherence to standards, and tailored to fit each classroom's trajectory over the school year. Our Ballet Machine program is a two-part series where classroom teachers can work with students in our pre-req video, then interact either in-person or via Zoom with a teaching artist AND professional dancers!
How much does Ballet Machine cost?For Ballet Machine, including our prerequisite video and our 1 hour in-person session, the total is $500. We recognize that this amount may feel large for some classrooms and student groups, so our staff is prepared to work with your Principal, Superintendent, or PTA to facilitate covering the cost of the program. Once we've identified that the program is the right fit, our staff will also work with you on Grants to cover costs for the future.
I'm a busy teacher...is there added work for me?NOT AT ALL! Our staff has tremendous experience organizing and facilitating these kinds of programs. After contacting our Managing Director and establishing a time frame, we will be in charge of scheduling, working with your school leadership, and all the other ins and outs of managing the program. All you have to do is introduce us on "the day of the show!" **As some programs may be reliant on Grants for funding, our staff may be in contact with you about a program assessment or personal feedback.
