The Art Of Animation
Do you ever dream? Do you ever imagine? One man did and he dreamed big! This year’s recital will put a spotlight on that dreamer and his dream, Walt Disney! It is with great pleasure that we introduce our 2017 recital theme “The Art of Animation”.
Walt’s story is a typical Hollywood tale; with little more than $40, a Suitcase and a Dream, Walt Disney’s future awaited. He experienced many failures, but as you know, it wasn’t long before his innovative imagination began enchanting the whole world. We will take you from the drawing board where it all started with a mouse, to Snow White, his first full length animated color feature, to computer animated ‘buddy’ adventure, Toy Story and our finale Under the Sea. Through his own dreams, his imagination and animated characters, Walt Disney showed us that a dream is a wish your heart makes, and those dreams really can come true. We’re excited to begin our 2017 recital with all of you!

Cecchetti Ballet is a method of ballet training established by Cavaliere Enrico Cecchetti. It uses a sequence of grades, carefully measured as to degree of difficulty and physical development.
Cecchetti Ballet provides a system of accredited examinations to test the student’s proficiency in each grade. Students receiving each Cecchetti Certificate can take pride in the fact that they have earned it through hard work, self-discipline and dedication. Each certificate gives the feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction and self-fulfillment that will remain with them throughout their lifetime.

It’s Not just About Competing…Project Drive
At AADbK, our Intensive Team members are encouraged to give back to our own community by participating in ways to show their appreciation and gratitude toward others who serve us in the community and those who may need a little extra dose of happiness. Their smiles and grace show they enjoy and care about these special outreach programs! We are so proud of you!
This fall, our Mini and Munchkin teams once again participated in our Cookies For Cops campaign! They decorated boxes and made cookies to deliver to our local Police Officers, Firemen, Paramedics, and EMTs! Another favorite project was making and collecting blankets to give to Project Ed Bear at Akron Children’s Hospital. During the Intensive Team Christmas Party, team members each brought a toy for a boy and girl. Gifts were wrapped and
delivered to the Battered Women’s Shelter the next day!
