Third-grade students at the International School at Dundee (ISD) recently went pro, choreographing and performing their very own ballet as part of a long-standing cultural partnership with the Connecticut Ballet.

The partnership, which is designed to encourage students to appreciate, explore and discover their creativity and to express themselves through non-verbal communication, supports the school’s International Baccalaureate (IB) unit of study “Meaningful Movements” by giving students a comprehensive understanding of dance.

This year, the students’ dances were inspired by the theme of “people in our community.”
