NYTB performs for ECPS students

TARBORO — The New York Theatre Ballet performed for every second-and third-grade student in the Edgecombe County Public Schools on Friday in Keihin Auditorium at Edgecombe Community College.

The ensemble performed a variety of classic nursery rhymes for the students including “Jack and Jill” and “The Old Woman Who Lived in the Shoe,” for the 1,077 students in attendance.

Students laughed and clapped during their favorite parts throughout the performance and enjoyed comical scenes created by the dancers.

“We were so pleased that the performers took the time to provide such a great show for our students. Some of them may not have had the opportunity to see such a performance otherwise,” said Sherita Cobb, Director of Secondary Programs and K-12 Fine Arts.
