In-School Performance: 9/11 An American Moment

Program description

The Central Florida Ballet’s Studio Company travels to your local school to provide a narrated, 45 minute performance with a Q&A Session. Our Spring 2022 presentation will be CFB’s original production “9/11 – An American Moment”.

Performed by CFB’s Studio Company dancers, the performance captures the poignancy of tested and proven American courage, resolve and pride in response to the World Trade Center attack.

Central Florida Ballet chose to approach this complex subject motivated by two strong reasons: first to educate; and second to pay tribute to the thousands of victims.

The performance is emotionally stirring. Some scenes contain live recordings of the events that unfolded that fateful morning. The end, however, is both patriotic and uplifting. Our national anthem is played and the audience rises and sings in unison with the performers.

The U.S. House of Representatives recognized the Central Florida Ballet for creating this original production in 2008  as “the only company in the nation to have choreographed a ballet based on this fateful day in American history”.
