$15/girl

Register at: https://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/content/girlscoutsofcolorado/en/events-repository/2018/day_of_dance_with_th.html

Join Girl Scouts of Colorado at Colorado Ballet for Day of Dance! Girl Scouts will experience four different dance genres throughout the day including ballet, creative/modern, folk, and a form of world dance. Dancers will be exposed to the specific techniques as well as improvisation and dance concepts. Brownies can work on the requirements for the “Dancer” badge.

Girls: Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in! Colorado Ballet recommends anyone under the age of seven to be barefoot as it helps to integrate plantar reflexes. Otherwise, barefoot is great for all ages, unless girls have ballet slippers or socks they would like to wear in ballet class.

Bring a water bottle, snacks, and lunch. Girls will be asked to eat snacks and lunch in the hallway and not in the studios. Water bottles are OK in the studios.

Parents: There is a waiting space for parents, or plenty of dining and shops in the area to visit. Please do not enter rooms while classes are in session.

Parking: Park at the lot on 11th and Santa Fe.

Special thanks to the Sunset Hills service unit for helping execute this wonderful event this year and in many years past! All attendees must have a current Girl Scout membership.

Juliette Low is the founder of Girl Scouts! “A true visionary, Juliette brought girls of all backgrounds into the out-of-doors, encouraged them to prepare not only for traditional homemaking, but also for possible future roles as professional women—in the arts, sciences and business—and for active citizenship outside the home. More than 100 years later, her vision has grown from the original 18 girls to 3.7 million today, with more than 59 million girls, women and men who have belonged to Girl Scouts over the years.”

Fun fact: “One of Juliette’s special skills was standing on her head. She stood on her head every year on her birthday to prove she still could do it, and also celebrated nieces’ and nephews’ birthdays by standing on her head. Once, she even stood on her head in the board room at National Headquarters to show off the new Girl Scout shoes.”
