Nashville Ballet 2 (Nashville Ballet’s pre-professional group) will be presenting a new children’s ballet this spring. The ballet, Jump Frog Jump is based on a popular children’s book and will be narrated in Spanish. There are two free performances coming soon:
Saturday, March 24, 2007 at Musica de la Gente time -TBA
Saturday, March 31, 2007 at the Frist Center for Visual Arts 2:30 pm
Presented by the Nashville Ballet, Salta Ranita Salta ("Jump Frog Jump") is a tale about a clever frog who escapes snakes, fish, turtles, and other dangers by leaping away. Narrated in Spanish only, this interactive performance gives children an opportunity to encourage the ranita (frog) to salta (jump) out of harm's way.
This performance is based on the book by Robert Kalan with choreography by Bat Abbit, and is made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
