Ballet Feibicke will visit Linden from June 25th-June 29th as part of the Blue Lake International Exchange Program. Twenty-Four members of the Ballet Company will stay in several community members homes while visiting Linden. This project is committed in part by The Linden Arts Council, President Sue Turpen and Event Organizer. Generous donations have already been accepted by local sponsors, Linden DDA and the Linden School District.
There is a greater need for local hosts to open their homes and provide a place to stay while Ballet Feibicke students are visiting the United States. Hosting an international student is very exciting and rewarding for the community. It is a special opportunity to enjoy and create touching experiences while spending one on one time aside from the public performance. If you have a guest room and time during the June dates, you can be of great help!
Thanks to our sponsors, many meals and entertainment are already supplied. What we are missing are members of the community that can put a special touch on the accommodations.
While in Linden, Ballet Feibicke will have one performance. The performance will be held starting at 6:30pm at Linden High School on Friday June 28th, Sorum said. Join us for an evening of classical and contemporary dancing to support our international visitors. A goodwill donation will be taken the night of the performance.
The Ballet Company is one of many Blue Lake Visiting Guest Groups that will visit the Midwest during the summer season as part of Blue Lake's International Exchange Program. Nearly 1,000 talented young American and European performers are expected to participate in the Blue Lake International Exchange Program this year, according to Richard Erne, Director of Arts Programs.
Blue Lake is best known for the Fine Arts Camp which operates each summer about six miles east of Whitehall, Michigan. Over 5,500 talented young musicians, dancers, theatre and art students---mostly from Michigan and other mid-western states--are expected to attend Blue Lake this summer. While at camp students have an opportunity to apply for participation in the Blue Lake International Exchange Program. Each year over 1,500 students apply – and from that 300 students are selected to participate in one of performing ensembles that make up the International European touring groups.
