"Once Upon a Storytime" Ballet Benefits
Ballet Aligned and the Utah Festival Conservatory's "Once Upon a Storytime" series is an opportunity to for our students to share their developing talents with the broader community while making a positive change in the lives of others. The Night Before Christmas and Hansel and Gretel premeired at the Utah Theater in the 2022-23 school year and raised over $5,000 combined for the Little Lambs Foundation and The Family Place respectively.

Don’t miss your chance to engage with ballet in YOUR community.
Story Times 2023-24 - TBA
Join Ballet Aligned director, Steffanie Casperson, for an engaging, imaginative adventure through a series of classical ballets. Enjoy photo ops, dance exploration, and mini performances by guest dancers. All story times will take place at Ballet Aligned studios, 1115 N. 200 E. Suite 320 in Logan.
Ballet Movie Night - Friday, February 24, 6-8pm
In keeping with our mission to make better ballet more accessible, Ballet Aligned hosted our Basics II and above students for an in-studio viewing of the Royal Ballet's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." Dancers enjoyed a fantasic show and a fun time with one another and left with a deeper appreciation for ballet mastery!
Geared to the intermediate or advanced dancer, these classes are scheduled with top professional teachers, and with specific goals for the dancer in mind. Classes are usually 1-3 hours in length and may include a Q&A before or after class.
Geared for dancers of all ages, workshops are single or multi-class events that should significantly improve the dancing of every participant or enrich their dancing experience. They are taught by Ballet Aligned faculty and guest teachers and take place throughout the year during ballet school breaks.
Workshops for 2022-23:
"Building Better Ballet Dancers" Seminar - Thursday, Feb 23 from 5:45-6:30 (Free to Ballet Aligned students and parents)
Pictured left. With special guests Debi King (Costume designer), Stefan Espinosa (Director of UFOMT's Conservatory), and Jennifer Anderson (Associate Director of the Family Place), dancers built better performance appearance, behavior, commitment, story-telling skill, respect, and community engagement, all in preparation for Hansel and Gretel in April. Thank you to all who attended! Excited to see you on stage!
