Ballet Theatre of Maryland (BTM), Maryland’s only professional classical and contemporary ballet company, is housed at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis. In addition to performances, BTM provides a fully comprehensive training program in classical and contemporary dance, including an apprentice program that draws students from across the U.S. and abroad.

Our kids (even the 'too cool' for this kids) were very engaged throughout the performance; and some teachers did a follow-up writing activity. I had prepared the kids before the performance with storyline, characters, etc. etc. It fit very nicely into my music curriculum as well as our literacy curriculum. Beautiful music, beautiful dancing, close proximity to the audience kept the students engaged

Wow, what a great performance and a great audience!! I love that the students had this opportunity. One boy in my class, who has a difficult time focusing and completing work, sat in rapt attention. I turned around to look at him and he had tears in his eyes. I said, "Logan, what's wrong?" nd he replied, "I just really like this." POWERFUL!

Our students were fascinated by ballet, a dance form most of them have never been exposed to. The fact that this assembly incorporated a story familiar to students made the performance that much better.
