Beck Center’s Dance Education program continues to excel with nine students participating in the Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP) February 28 through March 2, 2014. After receiving the 2013 Best of the West in Dance Instruction, Beck Center’s Dance Education program is thrilled to offer its students the opportunity to perform at YAGP. These students will take their education and training to the next level by performing at the world’s largest dance scholarship competition that awards over $250,000 annually.

The Sleeping Beauty Tea is geared toward children ages 3 to 10 accompanied by an adult. Guests will be served tea, punch, and cookies while a Sleeping Beauty fashion show and performance segments from the popular ballet take place. “The Sleeping Beauty Tea will be a wonderful experience for children who are captivated by ballerinas, fairytales, and tea parties,” exclaimed Melanie Szucs, Beck Center’s associate director of dance education. The dancers will teach the children Sleeping Beauty mime sequences and they will take home a special ballet craft.

In order to compete in Chicago, students of Beck Center’s Dance Education and the Dance Alliance of Beck Center (DABC) have been tirelessly fundraising for months. The next opportunity to support this endeavor is the interactive Sleeping Beauty Tea, a fundraiser for children based on this classic ballet. There are two opportunities to attend this event at 1 p.m. and at 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 26 in the Music & Dance Building at Beck Center for the Arts.

Tickets are $12 per person and can be purchased at or by contacting Customer Service at 216.521.2540 x10. Beck Center for the Arts is located at 17801 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood, just ten minutes west of downtown Cleveland. Free onsite parking is available.
