Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, in collaboration with Jump Street’s and™ magazine, have created this two-part program to engage young and diverse audiences by demonstrating that ballet offers the creativity and passion teens now find in fashion, movies, and social media. This program will enable teen artists to convince their peers that ballet is relevant and reflective of their particular interests and passions. Teen audiences have the opportunity to engage in various ways in addition to viewing the ballet, such as creative writing, graphic design, photography, and more!
