Ballet Memphis has a new dance program scheduled for the spring and they want children to help them create it. In February, the company will premiere I Am, a series of four original ballets entitled I Am a Child, I Am a Woman, I Am a Man, and I Am. They're asking you to fill in the final portion of I Am by describing creatively who you are.
Competition is open to youth in grades 1 to 12. • Deadline is Sunday, December 28.
Students can contribute in one of four ways:
Creative writing • Original pose or poetry, not to exceed 500 words.
Visual art • Original works that can include drawing, painting, photography, and more.
Dance • An original solo dance in any style, choreographed and performed by the student.
Music • An original composition, no longer than 3 minutes.
All winning participants will come together to perform at Colonial Middle School on Saturday, February 7, at 7 p.m.
