FCCPS Elementary School Students Learn About Ballet

Students at Thomas Jefferson and Mt. Daniel Elementary Schools were given a ballet demonstration last week by Cady Jardine, a Falls Church City Public Schools parent and ballet teacher.

The students read The Nutcracker and the King of Mice, touched a traditional wooden nutcracker, watched some clips of professional ballet companies performing and learned ballet positions such as bow, curtsy and pointe.
