Experience the Joy of Classical Ballet…With Your Kids!

CARE (Creative Arts Repertoire Ensemble) Ballet is a non-profit company and dance school. Each year, CARE Ballet offers three family-friendly ballets at an affordable price ($15 for adults and $10 for students/children). The one-hour performances introduce families to dance by presenting condensed versions of classic ballets and original ballets based on children’s literature. There is also an opportunity to meet the cast on stage following the performance!



Don’t Miss CARE Ballet’s Performance of The Pied Piper

CARE Ballet is bringing the classical tale of The Pied Piper to life this February. This is an enchanting ballet that both you and your kids will enjoy. 

“Join the Pied Piper as he rids Hamelin of rats by leading them through the town, across a bridge and into the countryside,” says CARE Ballet.

Your kids will love to “cheer with the village children as they skip and dance to the Piper’s sweet music,” continues CARE Ballet. This production of The Pied Piper is based on a poem by Robert Browning and choreographed to magical music. CARE says, “this tale will delight boys and girls of all ages!”

Your family can purchase tickets ONLINE HERE or by calling CARE at 616-464-3682. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.

Performances for The Pied Piper will be held at East Grand Rapids Performing Arts Center (2211 Lake Drive SE) at the following showtimes:

  • Saturday, February 4, 2017 | 11:00 AM & 3:00 PM
