Milwaukee Ballet Reading to Kids

Tiny dancers joined the real thing as the Milwaukee Ballet read to kids and then encouraged them to give it a whirl.

This was a chance for members of the dance company to connect with the community.

After some dance themed books, there was a show and tell.

Children got to see the shoes and costumes up close.

Dancers got a kick out of it, too!

"A lot of our dancers in Milwaukee Ballet  are very young and they haven't had a lot of experience doing this," explained Lori McNichols of the Milwaukee Ballet. "So, when they first start out they're kind of shy.  By the end of the year, they've just grown so much as people and teachers and the connection they make with the community and it really impacts them and the community which is awesome."

Dancers visited the Atkinson and MLK library branches Thursday.

The Milwaukee Ballet has had a community outreach program for 15 years.
