Each year CU Ballet collaborates with the Virginia Theatre, the Champaign Park District, and the Girl Scouts in presenting a springtime ballet which offers a special ballet experience for Girl Scout Troops. Up to 2,000 scouts attend the ballet each spring and enjoy the 33% discount off the standard ticket price, the free leader ticket with every seven scouts, fun patches, commemorative t-shirts, and a couple of surprises, too. Over the years, Scout Leaders have excitedly shared their feedback about CU Ballet's productions. . .
- "My seven-year-old twin girls loved everything about the ballet. They even wished it were longer!"
- "What a great performance and a fantastic opportunity for our girl scouts!!"
- "My girls all enjoyed the ballet and asked when they can go again."
- "Thank you again for a great day out with our girls!"
- "The girls love the patch! Thank you for the opportunity."
