LIBRARY SPECIAL EVENTS PROGRAM
The New England Ballet Company of Orange, Connecticut, is no stranger to ABCD. For years students have been treated to the Company’s presentations of “The Nutcracker” and “Peter and the Wolf.” Recently, the professional dance teachers, led by Artistic Director Mr. Ken Hopkins, came to the George Pipkin site to begin a 20 week course in ballet. Ballet shoes donated by Payless and the Dance Center, Bridgeport, were given to each child in the program. The Library Special Event Program, under the direction of Diane Wyckoff, is host of the Ballet’s Company’s performances and responsible for developing and bringing the dance program to ABCD students. This special program will be extended to other sites in our Early Learning Program in the near future.
Donations are very welcome and can be sent to ABCD Inc., c/o the Library Special Account, 1070 Park Avenue, Bridgeport, CT 06604. Ms. Wyckoff can be reached at 203-366-8241 x 348, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
