Testimonials

Thank you letters:

 “Thank you for providing us the opportunity to see your performance of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This is my favorite movie, and my anticipation to see it performed as a ballet and my questioning of how you could show this in the form of a ballet was great. I liked the way you stayed true to the original story, but made some unique changes. I have seen several of your other ballets and always enjoy your performances. Even the little girls do an excellent job.”

“Please accept this hearty letter of thanks for the tickets made available to attend the outstanding performance of The Nutcracker. We are so pleased that you made tickets for this outstanding combination of the finest baller and the finest music available to our students and our staff. This enables them to experience a level of music and culture in our local community that would otherwise be unavailable to them. It was inspiring for them to see such talented people on stage performing so magnificently. It was a wonderful and inspiring way to prepare for the holiday season.”

“Dear Brandywine Ballet, Thank you so much for presenting your beautiful production of Sleeping Beauty that my friends and I saw on May 2nd! The whole ballet was gorgeous; so graceful and a joy to watch from beginning to end. Thank you for giving the tickets to Art-Reach so my friends and I could go. We saw a beautiful story unfold with grace and style, and artistically rivaled only by the Pennsylvania Ballet.”

“Dear Brandywine Ballet members – My husband and I saw your performance last night at Rose Tree Park, and we would just like to thank you for a wonderful, delightful performance. We have seen you dance there before, and you get better every time. All the dances were good, but the “Requiem” was mesmerizing! We watched the little children in the audience dancing too, and realized how much of an influence you are having on the future ballet dancers –good for you! Thank you again for providing an experience we look forward to every year. Best wishes to all of you.”

Additional feedback:

 “I love that you dance at Rose Tree Park every year – it’s a highlight of my summer”

 “My family loves that the Spring ballers tend to be stories that children know and can follow along, but are just as captivating for adults – and the Fall ballets tend to be geared more for teens/adults. The Nutcracker, of course, is a classic. Having this range in your various ballets is a wonderful way to draw in different audiences.”

 “All of the productions are top notch, and it is evident that all of the dancers enjoy what they do. Keep up the great work!”
