Saturday’s performance by the Ballet Theatre of Maryland was magnificent! It was perfect for the Medieval Family Festival! Children and adults enjoyed it. I saw some students from my daughter’s ballet classes in the audience and they were mesmerized! Thanks also for bringing the examples of heraldry it was a perfect tie-in to the art activities.

Professional ballet company that takes great risks to showcase the art form. Amazing lifts, and powerful jumps!
