Ballet West and EmmalenePublished by dorie.thatcher on Wed, 03/08/2017 - 11:58
You may have read our post about Ballet West visiting our school last week, but there was more to it than just that... Ballet West has a dear friend here at Salem Elementary.
Previous to the Ballet's performance at our school, one of our Salem Elementary students had an extraordinary experience with Ballet West Dance Company. Emmalene Meyers was nominated by Lily Badger, a student at Foothill Elementary to be on RANDOM ACTS, a BYU television program that surprises people with special wishes. Lily knows that Emmalene is a dancer at heart. Emmalene received the royal treatment at the Capital Theater as the guest of honor of the Ballet Company, to watch preparations and a performance of "Sleeping Beauty". Then when the company came to Salem Elementary for an assembly, Emmalene was greeted by the dancers as a dear and forever friend. So, stay tuned to RANDOM ACTS programing in May to see the magical experience that she had.
