NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Several young students got the chance to learn a few dance moves, thanks to the Nashville Ballet.
The little ones were treated to a special performance today at Fannie Battle Day Home for Children. It was all a part of the Read to Succeed program. Madeline from the Nashville Ballet joined the students for story time and then shared a few ballet techniques of her own.
Teachers said it's just one way to open their eyes to something new and different.
"They could not stop looking, when the girls finished they wanted to have ballet dresses on. They went back to the class and dressed up and danced around. They really had a great time, and it opened up a whole new world for them," said Nettie Black, who works with the Fannie Battle Day Home.
Fannie Battle also hosted the ballet performance to reward the children for accomplishing their reading goals.
