Young Ballet Students to Compete Saturday in Free Dance Event

The public is invited to attend for free the 12th annual Ballet Competition of Santa Barbara, presented in cooperation with the Santa Barbara Dance Alliance from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday at the Marjorie Luke Theatre, 721 E. Cota St.

Join us in celebrating the artistic accomplishments of these talented young dancers from Santa Barbara County ballet schools.

If you have had the pleasure in the past of attending the competition, then surely you have experienced the joy and pride of seeing finely trained and dedicated local young dancers showing their love and skill expressed in dance.

Since 1995, the competition has been supporting local ballet students through the competition. This event is made possible by the generosity of local residents, merchants and the Marjorie Luke Theatre’s Dreier Family Rent Subsidy Fund.

All of the contestants will each perform two classical solo variations. Prizes will be awarded to all contestants at the end of the event.

The Ballet Competition of Santa Barbara is dedicated to honoring the ballet students of Santa Barbara County. We hope we can count on you to show your support by attending and applauding for your favorite dancers, knowing that this competition may help springboard a contestant into a professional career.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
