"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 premiered Dec 2022 and raised nearly $5k for the Little Lambs Foundation which provides comfort kits to children placed in emergency foster care, and serves over 2,000 families across the state with their diaper bank. (Visit BalletBeneift.com to learn more about this show, read audience reactions, and see pictures.)
Hansel and Gretel will premier this April and proceeds benefit The Family Place Utah whose mission is to strengthen families and protect children.
